One that I have been testing on my personal computer is spam inspector. I can't call it all that effective. I've had it for probably 3 months, and the only spam in the spam box is what I've manually put there to train the filter. It does have a nice feature which allows me to "bounce" the message back manually. So, if I suspect that someone will see it, I bounce the message and they remove me because they think it's a bad address. Another nice feature is that I can block all email from a certain sender's domain if I want. I like THAT one because it DOES work! For instance, I tell it to block all email from Yahoo, hotmail, and MSN (common addresses people use to spam) and then put friends on the allow list. That part works great too.
Now, if I could just get the heuristics educated enough to stop all the spam, it would be a great program!
Now I'm a die-hard Bayesian filter advocate. Programs like PopFile and SpamBayes will cut the time you deal with spam down to almost nothing.
It costs $30 a year and I would still use it if it cost ten times as much.
