  1. I use SpamBayes. It's a free plugin to Outlook and Outlook Express. It gets "trained", and I've been using it for about 2 weeks, it's amazing, it catches 99% of all the stupid junk mail. In fact, it's so good, I don't even have to check my Junk Mail folder because I know there's only spam there :D

    You see, when you first use it, it puts all your mail in the "Junk Suspects" folder and you have to just say "Recover From Spam" or "Delete As Spam" and it'll be "trained" to take care of future spam if you keep doing that.

    I may check into that after I graduate. Right now my school has some server side filter that flags the messages, then I just set up a rule in outlook to sort the flagged e-mails. I get 1-2 a week that find their way into my inbox (not flagged by the server). So right now thats by far the best situation for me, but I'm not going to have forever.

    This filter also exist for the www.squirrelmail.org Webmail server...

    I will install it and try it out and report back in a while how good it works...
