Spam filters for OE?

Someone I know with XP, using OE for email, on Xtra, has recently
started to get a large amount of SPAM. There seem to be a number of
SPAM filters that can be integrated into OE, such as SPAMfighter and
SPAMaware. Has anyone used any of these or recommend any other
solution?

Go to Xtra Webmail and flag the offending messages as spam. Their
filters will then learn what is spam. For me, about one spam per week
gets through their filters, and it's been about 4 months since a
legitimate message was put in the spam folder.

Really? Another friend of mine thinks that Xtra have abandoned email
filtering, trying to push people over to the Yahoo/Xtra email.

Well yes I meant Yahoo/Xtra email. I didn't know there was an
alternative.
If there was, it didn't work for my browser at the time.
