the end of an era
In 2002 (or thereabouts) I signed up to beta Messagefire, mooshjan's antispam service. Two years later, it was bought by a slightly larger company, which (from my biased point of view) apparently left the thing in a corner, running on autopilot. I've been using it for my spam filtering ever since, but when the SSL certificates expire, it's time to go elsewhere.

I just shuffled my mail flow around so that spam filtering is being done by Gmail instead.

But Messagefire still works so well!

Not for the kind of spam volume I'm pushing. (A typical Messagefire bi-weekly report says that it's releasing 600 messages for every 6000 it deletes. The problem is that about 300 of those 600 are ALSO spam.)

I did the same thing a couple of months ago, and have been pretty happy with the results...
