Humbly claiming to be "the absolute best SPAM fighting weapon that
the world has ever known," ASSP is short for "Anti-Spam SMTP Proxy"
Server. While it takes a little work to get it up and running at
first, it doesn't require a lot of maintenance, and the site wiki
includes extensive help on configuring the app so that it works for
you. Operating System: Windows, Linux, OS X.
Available as an Outlook add-on, as a Thunderbird extension, or as a
stand-alone proxy, Spamato uses multiple filters to separate junk
mail from the stuff you actually want to receive. Unlike some
anti-spam tools, it also lets you see why a message gets classified
as spam and adjust your settings as necessary. Operating System:
Windows, Linux, OS X.

Nixory will quickly scan your system and remove any malicious
cookies from Firefox. Unlike some similar apps, you can use it
alongside other anti-virus or anti-spyware applications without
first disabling those systems. Operating System: Windows, Linux, OS
X. Open Source Anti-Virus/Anti-Malware
