Which spam filter, though, is it? Do you rely on your email service's? Have you trained the filter built into your email program? Are you using a separate spam filter?
How satisfied, then, are you with your spam filtering? I'm relying on...
SpamHero Is the Best for Domain Owners
- With Postini shutting down, we have turned to SpamHero to protect our domain from spam, and we've been pleasantly surprised how much better it is.

- SPAMfighter, but [it] doesn't seen to stop spam, just marks it.
- —Guest dave ball
- I am using SPAMfighter, but I'm getting hundreds o f spam a day. I used the same program in the past and was very happy with it. It doesn't seem to be as effective as it used to be.

- MailWasher is the best. It can be used with practically anything.

Thinking about returning to SpamBayes
- I'm using whatever GCI (Alaska) includes, it's moderately. Thinking about going back to SpamBayes.

I Loved Ella, Now No Longer In Business
- Neither [the article on this site] nor the responses are dated, so I don't know how current this information is. I installed Ella based upon this recommendation and loved it, but since they are no longer in business, I can't buy the permanent version. Since I don't want all my email to be tagged with Ella's watermark, I'll have to try something else. Susan in PDX, September 2010

I use Gmail
- I use Gmail, and it does a great job. Any spam, about five or six a day, gets put in my spam folder. That count just went up from about two a day. I might get one spam a month, if that, going into my in box. I like Gmail's results. Works for me.

- I use a combination of basic IE explorer, Norton 360 and SpamGuard from Yahoo. Once I mark something as spam, I don't get anything else from that address.
- —Guest rneyal
- I'm not sure. Whatever accompanies AOL, Yahoo! and G-mail, respectively. The filters for G-mail and Yahoo are very effective; AOL Mail, not so much.
Netscape 7.2 Junk Mail Controls
- Yeah that's right good old Netscape, once you set up their Junk Mail Controls they block about 98% of spam and either delete it automatically or put it all in a Junk Mail folder just in case [the filter] grabs a legit email, these days it almost always knows the bad guys.
