Spam Blocker Review
Update: Qurb's site seems to be down
For the first time in my internet experience, I can
refer to spam in the past tense. I used to get spammed
constantly. I remember if I didn't check my email every
day or two, I would just clear the whole inbox because
it took way too long to search through the crap.
I tried different ISPs, spam filters and spam blockers.
I even tried changing my email address every couple of
months. All of these solutions had their benefits but
were a pain to maintain.
Whenever a new anti spam software came out, I gave it
a try because I was willing to do just about anything
to Block SPAM. I just want to say "Thank You Qurb. You
changed my life."
Since I started using the Qurb spam blocker, I have not
had to search through my filtered messages to find accidentally
blocked emails. And I finally got rid of those member
I don't know how they did it, but it does what all the
others promised to do and could not.

How to Stop Spam
Qurb is one of the latest technologies used
to fight spam and it uses common sense instead of complex
heuristics (geeky word for problem-solving formulas).
The difference of Qurb and Spam Arrest (our previously
recommended spam blocker) is that Qurb is an add-on piece
to Microsoft's Outlook and Outlook Express.
Because it is a downloadable add-on, there
is no costly, monthly service fee. There is only a low
($29.95 -at the time of this writing), one-time purchase
Anti-Spam Filter Solution
Qurb loses one piece of the automation that
Spam Arrest had because it does not ask the "sender"
to verify they are real; it asks "you" to look
through the "quarantined" emails and figure
out which ones are good or not.
The quarantine list is built dynamically
from your "address book", and it adds/updates
the list as necessary. Of course, you can also manually
adjust the list as you need.
You can add specific addresses of those
you already know to the list. This also includes newsletters
you subscribe to, etc. Adding newsletter emails is an
important step --otherwise, you probably won't get them.
The only other drawback (until future upgrades
are released) is that the Qurb Spam Filter Software only
works with Outlook or Outlook Express. If you use another
email software or need a platform independent solution,
visit our Spam
Arrest Review page.
Qurb is an excellent, inexpensive way to
fight spam. We highly recommend it for those that can
use it (i.e. Outlook clients). A quick glance through
an email quarantine is infinitely better than having to
sift through spam on an hourly basis (or minute-by-minute
basis in my case).
Finally take control of your inbox
with a spam filter that is simple, quick, and works!
