    Anyone running or can recommend a good email spam filtering software to use with Outlook 2003 on XP?

    IMHO there is no good email spam filtering system. :ohmy

    Most of them, even the Beysian ones will either stop wanted stuff when set too fierce, or let spam through when not set so fierce. And there is no 'perfect' middle ground.

    The company I work for has spent a *lot* of money on such a system, and still the spam gets through.

    On my Demon account I have now switched off the spam system, as it was bouncing emails I wanted, and just deal with it manualy. It's a pain, but if you want to use email you have to do it.

    We use Mimesweeper at work. The thing is, whenever it catches a bit of spam, it emails you to tell you so you can either delete it or add the sender to your white list. This seems a bit pointless to me as it's still generating network traffic with the notificatin emails.
