POPFile is an automatic mail classification tool. Once properly set up and trained, POPFile will scan all email as it arrives and classify it based on your training.

POPFile automatically sorts your messages and fights spam.

You can give it a simple job, like separating out junk e-mail, or a complicated oneā€”like filing mail into a dozen folders. Think of it as a personal assistant for your inbox.

What's New in This Release:
A bug in the handling of the charset in an email could be exploited to cause POPFile to crash when downloading messages.
Japanese users were unable to use the insert.pl script. This has been corrected so the Nihongo language is now correctly recognized. In addition the Nihongo language translation has been updated.
POPFile's license has changed (slightly). Prior to v0.22.4, POPFile was released under the General Public License version 2, stating that the user could choose that or any later version. With the current uncertainty about GPLv3, POPFile has been restricted to version 2 starting from v0.22.4.
Once GPLv3 has been finalized, we will review it and decide whether to revert to the "version 2 or later" permission. Naturally, all prior versions are unaffected.
The Installer's Brazilian Portuguese translations were updated. The installer now uses a longer timeout value so it can better monitor upgrading large SQLite databases. The SQLite Database Status Check utility now displays the size of the database (in KB).
All the "Remove" buttons are now at the top of the History page as well as the bottom.
It should be rare that anyone sees it, but we added a 404 page.
X-POPFile-Link improvements to let users change the link address used in Stealth Mode. By default POPFile uses for this address, but at least one email client (Eudora) issues a security warning for links with an IP address or 'localhost'. The wiki explains how to avoid these warnings: http://getpopfile.org/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?HowTos/SuppressXPLWarning
Prior to v0.22.0, "Remove Page" used to archive messages (when archiving is active), that behavior has been restored.
Updated the UI to the latest Brazilian Portuguese translation.
