If you have been running Baruwa and you still are getting more SPAM it
seems that either more is being emailed to you and it is successful at
bypassing well known filter methods or perhaps the Baruwa set of tools is
of such complexity that you are overlooking how it is actually working.

I am seeing a lot more phishing and "voice mail" spam carrying active code
lately. I have had times where some tools have failed in their accessing
external web site components which did not manifest is clear ways. It
simply was not obvious from maillogs what was happening. A corrupted data
base drove me crazy for weeks.

Jerry Benton wrote the three primary ones are:

- Baruwa
- Mailborder
- Mailwatch

I have tested all three. The Mailwatch seems to have more development
lately but the time of little activity puts it behind in my opinion.  I
found Baruwa had so much going on it was difficult to comprehend which
features were causing problems I encountered.  Mailborder is to me a
reasonable tool. I have not tested the newest releases and I do plan to.
There were a few short comings I believe Jerry may have now addressed and I
do want to see them.
