Swanee Longstaff: Hey, "I knew it all along" :-)
Abraxas I'd like to welcome our guests for this eveing, Randell Flint
and Rollin White, from Sundial Systems
* Longstaff still doesn't multiple boot *
Longstaff and Swanee - i'm on the record from last year
Abraxas I've been informed that tonight's discussion will center
around the recently released Junk Spy utility.
DSOMber1 Hello all.
Sector Hi John
Abraxas randell, rollin ... it's all yours :-)
Sector Hello warpit
rollin Thank you!
Sector Hello there DSOMber1
rollin First, let me start with a quick description of Junk Spy.
rollin Junk Spy solves the problem of Spam.
rollin It works between your email program and mail server to detect
and flag junk email.
You then use your email program's filter capability to delete
rollin the mail, move it to a folder, forward it to your favorite
rollin Junk Spy works with any POP3 mail client and has been tested
and verified with all of the popular OS/2 mail programs.
John I think I got at least 10 "Want to make real money?" Spam in
the last 2 days.
Rael Heh. ;-)
The key to Junk Spy over traditional email filter approachs is
rollin that Sundial has spent lots of time doing the research on all
of the junk mail, not just the junk mail you've received.
This research is ongoing and helps us update the Junk
rollin detection database. Infact the first update is due out next
These updates and Sundial's effort help make Junk Spy the
rollin hands off solution to Junk Email. No longer do you have to
waste time deleting junk email or trying to improve your own
filters. Sundial and Junk spy do it for you.
John so it works like a "virus detector?" You're always updating
rollin The updates are automatic too.
John sounds good.
Rael Does it sit between the POP server and the mailer?
When we create the update it is automatically sent to you and
rollin Junk spy will intercept it and updates it's database without
rollin Rael, yes exactly.
madodel0 Can the user update the detection database themselves?
We have provided an update center on our web site so that if
rollin you've missed an update or have reinstalled, you can
re-request the updates.
rollin You'll see a history of what updates were created and when
they were sent as well as any other account activity.
randell madodel0, did you mean "changes" (as opposed to getting the
updates manually which is what Rollin answered)?
rollin Sorry, yes you can make changes to the database yourself.
madodel0 randell: Yes, personal changes, rather then official ones
rollin Also, there is a global exception list which is the most
common update to the database.
randell And, any changes you make to the database are *preserved* when
*our* automatic updates are applied!
The changes you make are preserved in the automatic update
rollin process as well. If JS detects you've made changes to a
detector, it will not overwrite those changes.
randell It's really rather a keen database/detection update scheme
we've come up with.
randell It's all totally automatic, yet still under your control if
you want it to be.
We also use a few other technologies other than our detection
rollin database. We use MAPS's Realtime Black hole list and Real time
spam stopper list to add additional filter accuaracy
Longstaff query method, or, uhh maybe filter method
randell Longstaff, I didn't quite understand your comment.
Longstaff i was just curious about the technique
randell It's rather involved (and we consider some of it a proprietary
Rael Take us through a sample spam...what happens when Junk Spy
sees it? How does it know its a spam? Keywords?
randell but it's based on us knowing internally what "came from the
factory' vs what you've added or changed.
rollin Rael, As Junk Spy is downloading the message it examines it
based on the detection database.
rollin In simple terms, yes keywords, but it's a little more specific
Longstaff it must be pretty hot :)
rollin Then, if nothing is matched, it checks RBL and RSS.
rollin If either of those match Junk Spy adds several lines to the
header of the message.
They indicate that it's considered junk, and why. Then the
rollin message is either destroyed, or sent on to the email program
depending on user settings.
randell It's also important to know that our detectors can scan for
both "inclusions" and "exclustions"...
John What happens if the sender requests a receipt?
That function is not touched by Junk Spy. IF your email
rollin program supports receipts, then it should still generate the
randell and that's a part of the key to help *reliably* distinguish
junk from non-junk.
rollin Junk Spy logs all of it's activity so you can review what it's
We've also found that most people's TCP/IP configuration is a
rollin little screwy, so we've provided a TCP/IP wizard to help
configure TCP/IP so that Junk Spy can operate.
Abraxas Speaking of the TCP/IP Wizard
Sounds great! Gwen just got 2 copies of "nude celebreties CD"
John Spam - I got one. We weren't interested. I'll buy it. Thanks,
Abraxas Mine doesn't seem to work correctly (machine name is
rollin What doesn't work properly about it?
Abraxas JS throws a pop-up error message that says it couldn't find
the machine localhost, but it works, anyway
rollin Hmm, strange. I'll send you an email so we can debug the
Junk Spy also does several things on-the-fly to try to correct
rollin common TCP/IP problems. For example, it will create the
loopback interface automatically if it does not exist.
John Bye - gotta go.
Abraxas It's currently monitoring 4 e-mail accounts .. and doing a
fine job of it ... but that TCP/IP error is "weird"
Sector Bye John
warpit rollin/randel does JS work plain old netscape 4.04????
rollin Yes, it works with 2.02, 4.04, and 4.61. It works best with
4.61 because it has filters.
warpit how do you normally rev it up???
rollin Normally, you just start Junk spy and let it run. It's mostly
driven by your email program sending it commands.
Abraxas, one of the questions we get asked alot is if Junk Spy
randell support multiple email accounts (which is does). Since you're
using it that way maybe you could comment?
It's amazing how the junk mail problem has grown. We have
rollin several test accounts we've created. For one we posted one
newsgroup message. For another we put it on one web page.
They've both received 100's of messages.
Abraxas randell I had a bit of difficulty figuring that one out ..
until I reaf the entire online help file :-)
rollin What would have made it more obvious?
warpit, once Junk Spy is started, your email program sees it
randell as if it is your mail server; your mail server sees it as if
it is your email program; it just sits in between and does
Abraxas Basically, you set the e-mail program to look for e-mail on
Abraxas Then you change your username to reflect the path to your
Sector Use JunkSpy as your POP3 server, configure JunkSpy as you
would your email program (say mail.anywhere.net)
warpit randell so it does not matter which program is started
Abraxas Where my username would normally be dcasey, i changed that to
Abraxas dcasey3, that is
rollin warpit, Junk Spy has to be running before you can check for
mail, but otherwise, no.
Setup each account, using the machine name for the server, and
Abraxas add the real server to your userid, and JS works on all of
warpit randell does it work with injoy and dsl/cable modems????
Abraxas warpit I'm using it with Injopy Firewall and a Cable Modem
It does. It really doesn't know the difference other than a
rollin cable modem environment might have a little more complex
* Abraxas still can't type :-) *
Abraxas, and the key thing is that once you've done that...
randell that's all there is to it correct? Junk Spy will mange the
multiple connections from your email program without you
having to do anything more.
rollin IP setup.
Abraxas randell yep ... it's all "seamless" after that
I never know wheteher or not I have a particular account setup
Abraxas with JS .. until I look at the messages moved to my TRASH
folder, and see the additional lines in the header
randell So, if you want, it can be "set it and forget it"...
Our primary goal is no false junk messages. We're doing pretty
rollin good, but through user feedback that's part of what we change
in a given update.
Abraxas I've filtered 1331 messages with the GA version ... was over
5000 withthe betas
we encourage users to send junk messages that slipped through
rollin to email@example.com and false positives to
rollin Abraxas wow! That's a high ratio!
And, actually, the biggest job we had in developing the
randell product was determineing the best rules for what is *not*
Rael If there is something that JunkSpy trashes that we want, is
there a way to stop it from trashing?
I did have one problem when I was using the Injoy Dialer
Abraxas ......DOD uses an IP address that, in theory, should never be
seen, and never be routed
randell Rael, absolutely!
rollin We have 1000's of junk messages and 100,000 + non junk
messages that are used in testing.
rollin Rael, yes just add a keyword or name to the global exception
list. But we want to see it too!
Occasionally, something would slip through the cracks, and
Abraxas this IP address (I think it was 188.8.131.52) would get into the
header of an e-mail message.
Abraxas RBL Server would catch it, and tag it as junk
Abraxas rollin ... that's the total number of messages .... not the
Several times in testing people would say, it marked something
it shouldn't but I couldn't expect it to know the difference.
rollin It turns out one filter was causing problems for most of those
people. When I got them to give us details, it was easy to
randell Rael, one other key thing that may not be clear...
randell While you *can* have Junk Spy actually trash messages as it
Abraxas Out of the 1331, 77 have been detected as Junk
rollin Abraxas, that's more reasonable :)
randell The recommened method is to have it "tag" the message an
randell And then you use a very simple filter in your email program to
"route" the tagged messages into a folder.
Rael Ah. :-) That makes it simpler.
warpit how big is this *database* and programs in meg????
randell Then, you can review the tagged messages at your leisure to
make sure there wasn't something you really wanted.
rollin The whole thing is less than 5 megs, closer to three.
randell That's exactly what I do with PMMail ... as PMMail has
Abraxas a tendency to pass an empty message anyway, If I choose to
have JS delete the message
rollin Yes, PMM isn't happy with the delete option of Junk Spy but it
works well with the tag option.
randell And much of that is documentation. If you download it, the
image is under 1 meg as I recall.
rollin Yes, officialy it takes 1.4 m to install, and about half is
warpit is there any screen response that shows that its working????
rollin Yes, there is a small window and status icon to show what
stage of processing it is in.
Abraxas VERY small
randell And most of the database updates we automatically send you are
"deltas" so they aren't all that large either.
rollin It's meant to not be intrusive.
rollin Randell, no but the database will grow over time. Even if it
doubles, that's only about 600k.
rollin IT doesn't significantly add to the message download time
mandie g'evening :)
Sector Hi mandie
rollin Right on time!
warpit what if i use more than one isp????? do i need different
Abraxas Hello, Judy
Sector How's the birthday party¨
mandie rollin!! :)
mandie hi dan
Sector MODE +o mandie
mandie Sector: great...want some cake and ice cream?
Sector Sure, just DCC it
Warpit, no Junk Spy doesn't really care down to that level. As
rollin long as your email program can find Junk Spy and Junk Spy can
find your server it's happy.
I use it on my laptop which I use at home on my
rollin cablemodem/network at the office, and on the road via dialup
without changing it.
Swanee Hi PeterSkye
rollin Look what the cat dragged in.
mandie hi Peter
randell Peter, I thought I've heard you say you don't even *get* any
junk mail... so what brings you here?
PeterSkye Hi everybody
PeterSkye I feel I'
PeterSkye oops =- I feel I'm missing out...
rollin I'll forward all of my junk mail to you.
Projects There's an option on the junk spy page... "Get Free Junk Mail"
Rael Just in case you don't get enough already. ;-)
rollin How many 1000 messages would you like to start with?
rollin Rael, we do that so you can test out Junk Spy right away.
mandie randell: hi!
PeterSkye I got exactly two pieces of spam today. How did you ever get
randell mandie: hi!
rollin Someone I know put my name on tons of web pages :)
Projects and there's no chagre... big of you :-))
rollin Projects, we try :)
randell Peter! Two pieces of spam! We've got a solution for that!
Mok A solution indeed. My solution: shoot the spammers.
PeterSkye But I like to read it! Something about a site with a lot of
That's a natural reaction. Most people who try to "get back"
rollin and the spammers end up generating more junk email and wasting
time. That's why we emphisize the hands-off approache of Junk
randell Seriously, Junk Spy isn't for everyone... if you only get an
occasional piece of spam and doen't mind seeing it
randell (or like Peter, *want* to see it)
randell then, you really don't need Junk Spy... but it would still
benefit you if you had it.
randell On the other hand, it you gets lots of spam... or get only a
little but don't want to see *any* of it...
Rael I usually wind up changing my mail address once a year because
randell then Junk Spy is the best solution available!
randell Rael, no need to do that any more!
PeterSkye Seriously, I think a junk mail solution is well worth the
small investment you charge.
PeterSkye And I'm hoping you eventually can filter all the junk out of
the newsgroups I visit.
rollin Thank you. The cost is $49 and includes the first year of
randell (No comment on possible future products.)
Rael That would be nice...is it possible to apply this to usenet?
rollin Peter, yes newsgroups is one of the popular requests we get.
It's on the list :)
warpit you sell it thru bmt /ib???
rollin Yes, as well as direct. Whichever you prefer!
PeterSkye When you first came out with the product, I did a quick cost
randell warpit, yep, available thru both BMT and Indelible Blue now!
PeterSkye If you have employees or your time is _worth_ something, it
pays for itself pretty quick.
mandie !ask sundial
VoiceBot [sundial] Sundial Systems http://www.sundialsystems.com/
rollin I'm personally still amazed at how much junk mail is in my
rollin We started writing this application because we were sick of
junk mail. Now I study junk mail for a living :)
mandie sounds like a true "junk" collector :)
PeterSkye Plus, there are a couple of kids in this household, and they
don't need to see these messages.
PeterSkye What I've realized is that you don't just waste the time you
spend quickly scanning ...
randell We've been getting lots of positive feedback since Junk Spy
started shipping on Jan 10th.
PeterSkye the messages and deleting them. You also end up spending time
during the day ...
PeterSkye thinking about "should I have asked that ISP for a quote?
should I have clicked to that
randell And much of it relates to just those kind of reasons that you
PeterSkye web site with the coupons?"
warpit does it understand foriegn language like deutsch????
PeterSkye "Das parties mit der frauleins?"
rollin Not yet. That's one of our current weaknesses, but we're
working on it.
rollin Part of the problem is getting that foreign junk mail!
randell We don't have a large database of "foreign" junk yet...
certainly not enough to create good detectors for it.
PeterSkye Man, that's a _great_ name!
Sector Hi Rat-Salad
But the RBL/RSS features of Junk Spy are independent of
randell language... so it still can do a pretty good job in foreign
rollin You read more about Junk Spy on our website at
rollin Also, the first review is in:
And many of our foreign customers say that get lots of
randell *English* language junk mail... and Junk Spy filters that out
warpit what do your chineese user say about it???
randell And we understand that a few more reviews are coming out
soon... there's been *lots* of interest in the product.
warpit ah-so or ah-so/so????
rollin Nothing that I can understand :) So far, no one in any of the
Eastern countries has commented.
PeterSkye I read Luc's review. He did a pretty thorough job, I thought.
PeterSkye I noticed he liked it very much.
rollin Just got some junk mail :)
PeterSkye And there have been mentions on some of the mail lists, like
PeterSkye People seem to think it's worthwhile, even the ones that
weren't quite sure.
warpit how fast does this program work???
It only adds a very little overhead to the time to download
rollin your mail. Most of it's is CPU bound since we cache the
database. Also, RBL/RSS lookups can sometimes be
bottle-necked, but that's not ususally an issue.
Peter, and for people that aren't entirely sure, they can
randell download it and try it in "demo" mode to see how well it
Projects what's the restriction on the demo?
rollin It will only flag two messages within a rolling 24 hour
To followup on what Rollin said, generally you won't notice
randell much difference in retriveing your mail before and after you
install Junk Spy.
rollin It will still detect them, but not mark them.
randell And since the demo isn't "registered", you don't get any of
the automatic updates.
PeterSkye How exactly do I use the "markup" that Junk Spy inserts? ...
PeterSkye I'm still using Netscape 2.02 for email, with a pretty big
SORT.DAT filter file.
madodel0 Well Peter if you had showed up on time you would have learned
Basically, you create a filter to look for the text
rollin X-Junkmail: Yes in the header. Then set the action to whatever
you want, usually move it to a folder. That's it!
Abraxas I don't notice ANY difference between using and not using JS
PeterSkye Mark: :))
randell Each email program works a bit differently in setting up the
simple filter, but we'
randell but we've explained them all in the documentation that comes
with the product...
PeterSkye Can I filter different _kinds_ of spam to different folders?
PeterSkye Can I filter the "get rich quick" schemes to one folder, etc.?
rollin If you want, although we don't go into that level of detail.
madodel0 Peter: I thought you were already rich?
Also in the header we indicate what clue and detector caused
rollin the message to be considered spam. You could use the detector
to direct adult mail to your special mail box and all the rest
to the trash.
PeterSkye Hey, neat!! Now yer talkin'!! Gee, all those "party" sites in
one place ...
randell One other thing I should mention is that while we did label
the product as "1.0"...
randell It's a *Sundial* 1.0...
mandie which means?
randell And that means means it's stable, debugged, and actually works
We are actively looking for user feedback too. If you have
rollin ideas (like newsgroups) on how to make Junk Spy better, we
want to hear it!
rollin I'm actually amazed at the low level of bug reports. I
honestly did not expect it to be this low.
It's more like a 2.1 kind of product... we actually threw away
randell the 1.0 design entirely... work up the 2.0 design... rather an
extensive beta/prerelease on it and ended up with what we
PeterSkye I've always liked the way your products work great with the
very first release.
PeterSkye You must work your programmers to death. :)
rollin Would you like a job?
randell No, I just send them lots of spam about quality and deadines,
PeterSkye So those two spam messages I got today: One was from Funk &
Wagnalls, and ...
PeterSkye one was titled "Opportunity Knocks". (I just looked.)
PeterSkye They'd automatically go "bye-bye" with Junk Spy, yes?
Sector JunkSpy can destroy them so your email program never sees em
PeterSkye Neat! They deserve such a fate. :)
Now the one thing we don't do is try to deal with
rollin "advertising" from list you may have signed yourself up for,
or as a result of providing your email address to a vendor.
randell Peter, you could install the Junk Spy demo... then forward
them to yourself... and see what happens.
PeterSkye You know, I should probably do that. Junk Spy is really
intriguing, and I know it'll save ...
PeterSkye me some time. (Keep me away from those party sites, for sure.
rollin Another junk message received and flagged :)
rollin Are there issues we skipped over?
PeterSkye I really ought to just order this thing and put it to work.
rollin You can order it from us directly or BMT or Indelible Blue.
PeterSkye Every time Barnes & Noble sends me a spam, I end up cruising
their site for 20 minutes.
Rael Any volume discounts?
rollin Email firstname.lastname@example.org and we can probably work
PeterSkye Or I get some message like "free DSL service!" and I just
_have_ to look. ...
randell While the product is available on diskette (it fits on one),
it's primarily designed to be electronically downloaded.
PeterSkye Bam! Another 10 minutes wasted.
PeterSkye Actually, if I waste an hour a week on just a half-dozen
messages, either looking ...
PeterSkye at the sites or thinking about them after deleting the
messages, Junk Spy would ...
What I like most about using JS is the fact that I don't have
Abraxas to waste anymore time creating my own filters to deal with the
PeterSkye still pay for itself in just a few days. I think I'm sold. :)
rollin Normally we do a trivia question and give away a copy of a
Sundial product. Not this time though.
PeterSkye Abraxas: Hey, that's neat. Right now I'm doing it backwards --
PeterSkye valuable goes into folders, and the spam stays in my Inbox.
rollin Instead, we'd like to extend a special offer. Only to those of
you that have taken the time to join us for the chat.
For you guys only, we'll knock $9 off the price if you order
rollin it directly from Sundial. That's $40 for the product delivered
electronically and a year of database updates!
PeterSkye Me! Me! I'll take it!

the work you do supporting the OS/2 Community.
randell Now, Mike, why would you say that ;)
WarpHoss Sundial even.
IT's our pleasure. We appreciate this community which is part
rollin of the reason we extended the discount to the people here
randell Thanks as always for having us...
WarpHoss The door to this channel is always open.
randell And we'll be back in April!
rollin Email email@example.com if you've got any questions.
Otherwise, we'll be back in two months.
Abraxas randell .. you'll let me know, in advance, what the topic will

randell that was "firstname.lastname@example.org"
persell I'll volunteer to handle the refresh chat Mark
rollin Thanks randell :)
Abraxas persell when do you want to schedule it?
randell We don't have the April topic yet... we'll try to get it out a
bit earlier than we did this one.

persell What I volunteered about
Sector Hello Mr-Data
RumpleS I see persell, just spotted the bit about the OS/2 refresh.
Mr-Data hi sector
Sector Guess that didn't get burned...

people in the same room
RumpleS Actually, where is that article by Esther?
DSOMber1 That looks promising.
Sector Hi Egon
DSOMber1 Hello Egon.
Sector Rat-Salad is back (but from where¨)
