Using AntiSpam with Voyager

You can read about Antispam and download v1.59.6 from here

Here is an archive containing a Settings file for use with AS v1.50 or later. You must enter your Orpheus username and POP (email) password.

The archive also includes instructions for integrating AntiSpam with Voyager, so that it is run automatically in place of the standard mail fetcher, or to remove Antispam if necessary.

This archive contains a VIX module, to add AntiSpam to Voyager's toolbar. This is just the VIX code - add your own copy of Antispam

Finally, if you have installed AS as a VIX module, you can make it activate the toolbar LEDs and report its actions in the Voyager Log. This archive contains the necessary additions to the AS UserTests file, and a small program !ASReport. You should place this within the VIX directory and make it run when the mailbox is completed.

RuleSort is a log-file analyser which will also generate a Rules file based on your existing file but re-arranged for maximum efficiency, based on the usage displayed in your Log files.

It applies a weighting factor so that most recent usage is given greater significance, making it easy to adapt your rules file to the current spam pattern.

Vers 0.10 handles rules using Lists, and AND rules, and will suggest re-ordered lists based on recent usage.

This will wipe any zero-length files in !Voyager's news History directory, to reduce the likelihood of future problems.

You can either run it by hand occasionally, after !Voyager has been seen by the filer, or add a line to !Voyager.!Boot do so automatically. I have set up a button on VoyDirs to run it, as it hardly seems worth a VIX

This VIX module writes the assigned IP addresses to the Voyager log window when Voyager connects. If you don't know what that means, you probably don't need this VIX!

This is a useful little application for users of Argonet's Voyager software. It lets you change your sig file easily. This means that if several people are using the account you can have different sigs or you could have a serious sig and a silly one. The selected name is displayed on the status bar. It also lets you change your real name in e-mail and/or news, and the e-mail address used in news.

IMPORTANT: If upgrading, keep a copy of your Users file and Signatures directory

This version of Voysig has proper support for varying sigs in multiple mailboxes, in Posty1.23 and earlier versions.

Iyonix     Toolbox

Two of the most common complaints about Voyager are that the toolbar is too short, truncating the messages about arriving e-mails, or too long, losing valuable information off the side of the screen! Here are a pair of VIXens to solve whichever problem you have. DummyGap forces the useful data displays to the left so they will remain visible, and can now include a dummy LED, while DummySpr widens the tool-bar, for those with few VIXens installed. Download the archive, decompress and install using the VIX manager. Neither has any effect except on the look of the toolbar.

Here's a little thing I wrote earlier - a VIX module to run !StrongMen from the toolbar, for those managing their hotlists that way.

Drag the data file to the window in Preferences -> VIX Manager as usual, and then move your copy of StrongMen into the resulting !Voyager.VIX.StrongMen directory

You can get !StrongMen from here
