Mozilla recommended at Singapore’s new antispam move

So Singapore has taken a significant step against spam. I’m not going to comment on the antispam move in this entry (if at all), but I thought it interesting to check out the “free trial of anti-spam software” as reported in the article and found something interesting. The Singapore AntiSpam Resource Centre has a list of recommended antispam software, and in that list is none other than “Mozilla Browser” and a write-up on Mozilla Mail’s Bayesian filtering system.

Nice. I just wrote in to tell them to include Mozilla Thunderbird in that list, and also to possibly change “Mozilla Browser” to just “Mozilla” or “Mozilla Mail”.

Update: Well they’ve very promptly changed it to Mozilla Thunderbird. It has replaced the previous “Mozilla Browser” completely though.

Hurray ! I am a one happy user of Mozilla ThunderBird. In my experience, it works much more better than Outlook Express.

It’s nice to know they are doing somethign about it. But I cannot imagine people who don’t know much about computers moving to Thunderbird or Spambayes in droves. You can read about my opinions of that site in my blog
