Well, ASSP could (like any Perl application) as well be compiled to a standalone .exe by using PerlApp. On the othe side, the original SpamAssassin could as well run as Perl script when a Perl environment is installed at the Win32 PC. This is also not really 'pseudo' as it's a fully working Perl environment. It's just ridiculously large and complex just for running a single application. Under Linux, Perl scripts are a essential part of the OS hence it's better supported there.horndog wrote:AFAIK SA is the only App that doesn't require a pseudo Linux environment to be placed in Windows to work such as ASSP.
Short answer: Nohorndog wrote:Is there a native windows anti spam program that can be used with HMS to replace SA?
Long answer: SA actually consists of several anti-spam programs. There is a Bayesian classifier, a regular expression interpreter, the external programs DCC and Razor2 and so on. DCC compiles fine under Win32, Razor2 has to be ported but runs also fine, there are a lot of Bayesian classifiers and regular expression interpreters which could be used but the problem is to integrate it all into hMS. I remember vaguely that I've looked at the possibilities how to implement the stuff into hMS and found that it can't be done currently because of some limitations with either the filtering, the API/vbs scripts or something like that.
I know about it and I also know the coder (Lukas G.) quite well. SpamHalter even includes the one or another feature which I've invented. Why do you ask?horndog wrote:When I used Mercury Mail they use an anti spam program called "SPAMHALTER." Does anyone know about it?
