Guide Review - DzSoft Mail Check 3.3 - Mail Checker

DzSoft Mail Check announces new mail in any of an unlimited number of POP (the only supported protocol) in an unobtrusive and efficient manner.

The option to assign a different sound to each account comes in handy, but makes it even harder to understand why the checking interval cannot be customized per account. The feature that makes this mail checker stand out from the crowd is the rich set of pre-configured anti-spam filters it comes with.

Getting started with efficient spam filtering takes but a few mouse clicks. DzSoft Mail Check can put an end to the Sircam insanity, too. Unfortunately, this is also where Mail Check stops. Except for blocked words and addresses, the anti-spam filters cannot be customized, and you cannot add your own.
