107 trillion of emails have been sent over the Internet in 2010. The 89,1% of those were Spam. It means an average of 262 billion of Spam emails per day.

Email Security Plus is a Thunderbird extension that lets you to take back control over your inbox, providing to Mozilla Thunderbird a set of additional tools for the email security.

As you probably know, Mozilla Thunderbird uses a bayesian filter as Spam filtering software. This is one of the latest and more efficient content filtering approach that recognizes Spam by looking at the percentage ratio of individual words inside both the legitimate and junk emails. It is impressively effective, but it needs to be “trained” — it needs that some emails are flag as Junk before starts to work properly.

Email Security Plus provides two rule-based filters that train the bayesian filter of Mozilla Thunderbird, by marking automatically the junk emails.
These two different filters control respectively emails coming from unknown senders (looking for: Spam, Scam, Phishing, …) and from senders that are in your Address Book (looking for Hoax emails).

NB: Email Security Plus does NOT detect all the Spam. It is not perfect and, probably, it will never be.

In addition Email Security Plus also provides a Blacklist.
All the incoming emails from blocked senders — senders that are in the Blacklist — are automatically moved into the Trash folder. Users can add the senders’s email address or domain to the Blacklist in one-click.
