While some people are waiting with baited breath for Bill Gates to deliver on 
his promise of eradicating spam in 24 (I guess now 22) months, I've found a 
technical solution that works great today.  It's free open source software 
called Spambayes.  There is an Outlook plug-in (which I use), and versions that 
can be installed between a POP server and clients on Unix.  

I cannot say enough good things about Spambayes.  It is currently catching over 
99% of my inbound spam, with the rest ending up in it's "suspect spam" folder.  
Did I mention that it is free, open source, software?

There are other statistical spam filters out there, such as the one included in 
Mozilla's email client (http://www.mozilla.org).  If you don't have a good 
solution to spam, check out one of these tools.
