anti spam sw?

Can anyone recommend some basic anti spam software that merges painlessly
with OE and that doesn't require emails to be checked at a different
location or only allowed though when the sender put a code in or anything
like that
I've happily used Norton anti spam for 12 months but the subscription had
run out and they'll only upgrade to their full security suite which I don't
want

SpamPal

It only tags suspect mail as spam. It is up to you to define whatever
rules you want to do whatever you want on this tagged mail. SpamPal
identifies. You choose what to do with it.

I used Mailwasher (free) for many years with OE and now use it for Windows
Mail on Vista.

Just don't use the Bounce feature, it's worthless.

Check out Thunderbird from the same fine folks who bring you Firefox and
turn on the Spam measures. It features are many and it gets smarter
the more you use it.
Good Luck

Can anyone recommend a triviality that merges painlessly with the 7th layer
of the hell and isn't as broken as any imitations of a triviality?

So, you have happily fried in hell... why do you want to avoid lesser pain now?

Useful if you only have a single mail account. If you have more than
one e-mail account then you need to find a different free solution. Too
bad they don't actually donate to the DNS blacklists that they use since
they obviously have a commercial version that they try to lure you into
buying. Cheapskates!

Actually if you can find MailWasher 2.0.28 Beta, this is the last free
version that still allows multiple accounts. Works great for me and has
been for years now.

I only have one email account. I only use MW for one thing, as a proxy
between the pop3 server and the mail client software. Nothing just shows up
on my machines due to some auto setting in OE or WM as those features are
disabled.

I don't mind paying for one that does what I want. I simply want a "spam
folder" in OE that it diverts likely spam to. I don't want to have to check
a web based site or anything first and ideally keep to using OE
