Use an online service like Yahoo that has global spam filters

Default Contact your ISP which has services available and...

...will auto reply with a message in the event the message was genuine, on how to contact you and be removed from the filter.

Default www.Qurb.com (FREE)

just installed it yesterday, works fine so far. It's FREE to download then you can register for $24.95. Works fine with Outlook and Outlook 2002 and any POP3 email server. I use it at the office with MS Exchange, no problem.

btw the software got great reviews in the last issue of PC Magazine.

Default at work? I use my hotmail address for everything non work related and.....

set up the mail filter to only allow people in my personal address book to get through. Everything else goes to a bulk mail folder and gets automatically deleted once a week.

Every other day or so I scan though to see if there are any legit emails in the bulk folder which can be easily spotted by the subject line.
