SpamEaterTM Pro System Requirements
Following are the minimum system requirements for running SpamEater Pro 4 on your computer. Recommendations are included where improved performance can be seen.
  • Pentium class or better computer. (1.2 ghz or faster recommended)
  • Color monitor with 800 x 600 resolution (1024 x 768 or better recommended)
    640 x 480 resolution will work, but window sizes may be limiting.
  • Windows 95 or newer (32 and 64 bit)
  • 64 meg RAM (128+ meg recommended)
  • 5-50 meg hard drive space (suggest 50+ meg additional for data archiving)
  • One or more POP3 or POP3S email accounts. POP3 is the protocol the vast majority of ISP's
    support for retrieving your email messages.
  • For the Recovery and bounce options, SMTP or SMTPS (TLS) is also required - which is typically the way most ISP's support sending email.
  • Internet connection. SpamEater supports dial-up, DSL, cable, LAN, satellite and any
    other TCP/IP based network connection.
  • You must also know what the names of the incoming and outgoing mail servers are, as well as your username and password for those servers. Basically, you must have the information and know how to setup a basic email client account.
SpamEater Pro will not work with Juno, AOL or other web only based email services. You can use SpamEater with your web based email service with the use of additional software such as Web2Pop or IzyMail.
Standard POP3 access to your ISP's mail server is required. Yahoo is directly supported when the Yahoo account is configured for POP3 or POP3S access. The same is also true for Google's Gmail service. Hotmail.com and Live.com accounts require SSL/TLS connections, and so require SpamEater Pro v4.1.0 or greater.
Microsoft Exchange Server is also supported as long as the server has the POP3 or POP3S protocol enabled for the accounts to be checked. By default, this is typically not enabled in Exchange installations. Check with your system administrator to find out if yours is or not.
