History of AntiSpam
AntiSpam 1 was a stand alone application (i.e. not interacting with PMail via the extensions manager
but manipulating the files on its own), written in Delphi, and it was never publically released.
- AntiSpam2 was written in Delphi, using Borland Delphi 4 Professional, and it was the first
version that worked as a PMail plugin.
- We started to use
sourceforge in January 2001.
- Version 2 was finished more or less in May 2001, and the last released version is from July 2002.
- One year after AntiSpam2 was finished, and after some other
projects, we started
to work on version 3 in order to improve some features and to implement some of the suggestions
made by users (cf. the "Questions" section on the AntiSpam2 page).
- AntiSpam3 is written in C++ using Borland's C++Builder 4.
- Real life tests began in December 2002, and the first release candidate could be retrieved in May 2003 from
- Release candidates 2 and 3 followed one and two days later, both fixing bugs in connection to Windows 2000
and Windows XP. This time we used Borland's C++Builder 6 to compile the sources in order to make
the DLL work under Windows XP.
- Besides minor fixes Release candidate 4 adds the feature to define default email addresses for the
complaints (June 2003).
- After some weeks of testing RC4 seems very stable. We added three more features (made the subject of the
complaints editable, introduced a new CopySelf setting, and enabled selecting the whole lines in the
"Received lines ..." and "Complain to ..." lists) and released version 3.0 (August 2003).
- We fixed a bug in the usage of temporary files that caused AntiSpam to attach wrong spam mails to
the complaints if several spams were dropped on the main window simultanously (September 2003).
