The company that hosts my web site does no filtering of spam or viruses whatsoever. Whatever is sent to me, I get. They have indicated that most of their clients are companies that deal with those matters at their end.
Previously, this was not a problem, because I hardly got any emails. However, lately I have been getting a thousand spam emails a day. I am now spending hours of my time pulling the good emails out from among all the spam, instead of getting productive work done.
So now I am wondering, what are my options for dealing with spam? Is there a favored software product for dealing with spam (ideally, something that can stop spam at the server, so nothing gets downloaded to my computer)? I will be doing my own search, but I would still like to hear your recommendations for how to best deal with spam.
