The pc at work is constantly getting spam,over the weekend the secretary said she had over 1000 spam emails so is there a good free spam filter out there that she can put on the pc,i know shes tried a few but they still keep coming through :)

Let's move before they raise the parking rate.
You can set rules to deal with a lot of Spam.

Go to - Tools - Message Rules - Mail...

If there's some sort of pattern e.g, specific words, people, subject etc, then these can be selected and deleted immediately.

To be on the safe side, you can also create a new folder & send them there and review/delete them at your leisure.

I'm not sure about commercial filters, but hopefully by creating your own rules, you can catch the majority...especially if you create a few of them.

This is the best option for catching spam.

Make it so u can only get mail from anyone in your address book or any other recognised email add.

Zone alarm also good spam filter
