Cactus Spam Filter for Eudora

By default, Cactus Spam Filter runs seamlessly with Eudora, no additional settings in your e-mail client are required. Just download and install our spam killer and it will immediately protect your Eudora inbox.

Moving spam e-mail to a special Eudora junk folder

E-mails classified as spam will get a tagged subject line. The tag is *** CACTUS SPAM *** and can be used to automatically move such e-mail into a junk folder. To do this you simply will have to add a message rule in Eudora. Here is a step-by-step guide.

NOTE: there is a space between the asterix and ‘CACTUS SPAM’ (***CACTUS SPAM***) and it’s important that you use them.

1. Start Eudora.
2. In the menu, select ‘Tools->Filters’.
3. Click on ‘New’.
4. Set ‘Header’ to ‘subject’.
5. Set ‘Contains’ to *** CACTUS SPAM ***.
6. Set the first action to ‘Transfer to’ and select the junk folder.
7. Save.

Training Cactus Spam Filter with e-mails from Eudora

Cactus Spam Filter offers a feature that will train your filter quickly, instead of having to guide it for every incoming e-mail. If you already have a bunch of good and spam e-mails in your Eudora e-mail client, you can directly train the filter with these e-mails.

Eudora can’t by itself export e-mail messages to their raw format, but I am sure there are utilities out there which can do this. If you find one, please let us know!
