Wow!  Thank you.  Thank you is all I can say, assp is just perfect, amazing and everything else.  This was easy to follow and worked perfect, my spam has dropped to nearly zero.  I've been a supporter of for a while now, and this just made it worth more than I could ever pay

Trying to unzip the VM winrar (3.70) returns:

C:\Documents and Settings\StErin\Desktop\ Unexpected end of archive

I downloaded it twice but the error remained. Could you please verify your archive?

(I love downloading your projects as VMs. This is so nice to troubleshoot my own projects)

Yes, you're right... I've asked Oliver (the author) to check this and upload a new zip archive.

I've created a new VM - it will be available tomorrow.
I also overhauled the Howto to v1.1 (two little changes).
