Hi Charles,

I've been having a lot of success by looking at the HTML code in the
spam and blocking the domain names that they link the graphics and spy
components to using MailSecurity 8.

You could get a spam shield like GFI's offering or MailMarshal however
it doesn't  always catch newly crafted spam mails until you have altered
or added new filters (im sure other members on this list could give
indications on how much they need to maintain the text sensor scripts to
block new spam waves).

The other alternative is to pay for a managed service to receive your
email through, like messagelabs. They are obviously as about as up to
date as you can be on their virus and spam filtering as it's the core of
their business model.

Either way its gonna cost money.
