We have officially released the new SpamFilter ISP v3.0.1.557. This latest version has several exciting new features. Two new filters are available:

SpamFilter is now able to scan inside images embedded in emails, and look for spam signatures in the attachment itself.

SFDB - SpamFilter Distributed Blacklist. The SFDB filter uses a very powerful resource to stop spam:
The entire global SpamFilter ISP user community.
Anytime an IP address sends spam to SpamFilter, the SFDB filter updates our Distributed Blacklist centralized database. This allows the SFDB filter to have access to a huge repository of spammer's IPs, updated in real-time by all the SpamFilter ISP users in the world.

This new release also features an administration web interface that can be used by administrators to monitor and configure SpamFilter remotely via the web.

Following is the complete list of new features and fixes from the previous official release:
