    How good is the spam-blocking with Thunderbird 1.5? My mother is using
    Outlook Express 6 SP1 on an ancient Windows ME desktop PC, and is somehow on
    someone's spam list. Various email addresses (most of them probably phony),
    are blocked, but the junk mail keeps coming. When she opens the mail, the
    "to" listing doesn't even have her email address.

    Thunderbirds Junk Mail Controls are among the best available. 'Out of
    the box' they will catch 60% plus of spam sent your way, and as time
    goes on, that will increase to 95% or more of spam. JMC (Junk Mail
    Controls) is a Baysien type, meaning it 'learns' as it goes along, so as
    spammers come up with new tricks, it adapts and blocks them.

    My JMC is currently catching over 98.9% of spam sent my way (and thats
    on a 'new' installation - just 6 months old - my old installation had
    about the same percentage). i.e. for every 2 spams I see in my inbox,
    JMC has already caught 199 spam
