Can anyone advise me if there are any reliable anti-spam application on he market.

 

I did a quick google and there was a page full of results but then how do you seperate the good from the bad?

 

Any suggestions would be well received, thanks in advance.

 

:think:

 

Edit

I've blocked certain email address (AOL Connection) but they return.

One in particular  is and email from ...Canadian Pharmacy.

Googling suggests certain spam can be problematic and difficult to get rid of one they have an email address.

Canadian Pharmacy came up a one such spammer.

 

I don't really understand how these spammers work are they really penetrating the internet providers servers?

 

Just looking for software that focuses 100% on spam (no Antivirus combination etc.....)

Gmail has the finest spam filter I've ever seen built in to it.

 

The better anti-spams  incorporate a form of Bayesian filter.   These work by learning what you regard as spam and gradually building up a knowledge base.

I have used MailWasher Pro for years...  It doesn't filter so much as give you a way to delete SPAM off of the server before fully downloading it...  I don't believe it works if you only access your mail online, but it works with programs like Thunderbird or IE...  I haven't looked for a long time, but they used to offer a free version which had some limitations...

Thanks for the replies, explanation and links.

I wasn't sure about gmail, but that sounds good, I'll maybe get a gmail account.
