I recently downloaded this and it has been catching at least 75% of the spam I normally get. It works on a system sort of like Napster where users share info about what is and is not spam in a central database which all emails are validated against. That means the database can keep up with the spammers because the database isn't built around keywords but rather by real people in real time reviewing their emails.

Hmmm...
Are you sure your ISP doesn't provide spam filtering for you?
BellSouth does and it's (so far) fail proof. And I don't have to depend on an outside service and just on the one that I pay for...

Hi,
Alternatively use a little known spam filter known as Hotmail
I never give out the email address I use with my ISP except to friends and collegues. Email lists, E-Commerce, Forums (like this one) all go through Hotmail.
Ok, so Hotmail isnt spam free, but I get a lot of my spam to Hotmail junked by regularly reviewing the blocked list and building up rules like "Block anything with viagra in it".
Still, what you propose is very clever and I wish them the best of luck!
Cheers,
Mark

My ISP (otimum online) does a very poor job of spam filtering.
