AntispamSniper for TheBat!
version 3.0 beta 1
The new version contains essential new features improving the filtering quality and the convenience of program interface. The new version can be installed above any previous.
[+] (pro) The plug-ins can exchange with the filtering data in local network, via SniperSync server. The common whitelist of senders and common database of message descriptors implemented in SniperSync are available for the connected plug-ins.
[+] (pro) Full SSL support is implemented:
- The plug-in can filter IMAP sessions, protected with TLS or STARTTLS
- It is possible to restore the messages, mistakenly blocked by header via POP3s connections
- The plug-in adds accounts using standard ports for SSL protected POP3 and IMAP to the list of filtered accounts automatically.
- The types of protected connection TLS and STARTTLS are recognized automatically.
During filtering the protected connection the plug-in gives to email client a self-signed certificate, and the email client displays a warning. It disappears after pressing a button for adding this certificate to TheBat storage. The communication between the email client and mail server remains protected as usual.
[+] (pro) The following predefined conditions are implemented for using in rules:
EMPTY_BODY - Message doesn't contain non-empty text or attachments
NOT_TO_ME - The lists of recipients (To: and CC: header fields) don't contain the address of destination mailbox.
DATE_IN_FUTURE - The message creation date is in future (more than 25 hours after receive date).
FORGED_NDR - Message contains an invalid non-delivery report (NDR). This condition detects reverse NDR attacks.
CAPITAL_LETTERS_IN_SUBJECT - More than 80% of capital letters in subject, which is at least 10 symbols in size.

Windows NT/2000/XP/2003/Vista x86/x64
SniperSync is a TCP server, allowing AntispamSniper plug-ins to use the common whitelist of email addresses and common database of message descriptors. Different copies of plug-in in local network can use the common database via two-way synchronization with the server.
The server is free, but it works only with AntispamSniper Pro.
