    Those who make use of BoxTrapper and who are looking for documentation on features and how it works might want to take a look at the website at SourceForge of ASK (Active Spam Killer):
    It seems that BoxTrapper is a virtually-unchanged implementation of ASK and so all the ASK documentation (such as the user manual which is in pdf format at or the FAQs at should be applicable, although I have not thoroughly tested this.
    Despite the strong reservations of Chirpy, this forum's moderator, I personally find this challenge/response spam blocker to be extremely useful.
    I monitor several email addresses which are published on the web (and which are therefore known to spammers) and I am also a traveling user. I recently had trouble connecting for a week while I was traveling and once I got a hotel connection I had to accept 4,000 spam email downloads. In discussing Internet traffic, the client connection shouldn't be forgotten, since this is often a slow, expensive link - much better to stop the traffic at the server.
    Since implementing BoxTrapper I have cut down hundreds of spam a day to virtually none (although obviously creating some inconvenience for first-time senders). I believe that ASK/BoxTrapper has reasonable precautions to stop un-controlled bouncing and, although there is no single solution to spam, I'm sure that some kind of challenge/response system is part of the solution.
