Sam Spade is a suite of network tools with some extra features for tracking unsolicited e-mail.

Each tool displays it's output in it's own window, and everything is multi-threaded so you don't need to wait for one query to complete before starting the next one. Some functions are threaded still further to allow lazy reverse DNS lookups (never do a traceroute -n again).

The output from each query is hotlinked, so you can right click on an e-mail address, IP address, hostname or internic tag to run another query. Appending the results of a query to the log window is a single button function.

Sam Spade comes with a host of useful network tools including: ping, nslookup, whois, IP block whois, dig, traceroute, finger, SMTP, VRFY, web browser, keep-alive, DNS zone transfer, SMTP relay check, and many more.
