    I am using a freeware spam filter called K9 from www.keir.net. It works GREAT after I got it trained. However, I was wondering if there is another similar freeware program out there that is more tightly integrated into Outlook. I would like to have buttons in outlook that I can hit to mark messages as Spam and delete them outmatically when the rare spam message passes through.

    Anything like that available that is based on the Bayesian filtering process??

    I don't know about anything for Outlook Express, but why not try Mozilla Thunderbird for your e-mail client? It's got a spam filter built-in. Sure, it's not Microsoft, but it is still a good e-mail client IMO.

    If you're not looking to change e-mail clients, I just did a Google search and found something called Spam Bully. Looking at the screenshots for it, it looks like it integrates pretty nicely into Outlook Express, so you may want to try that too. http://www.spambully.com/

    EDIT: Well, after reading that web site, I realized that it Spam Bully is not free, but you get a 14 day free trial. It'll cost $30 to buy it. Although it does look really nice. So, as far as free solutions... Mozilla Thunderbird. :)

    Outlook Express? Gew! ;)

    Seriously, though, I've always liked POPFile for Bayesian filtering. It creates a local mail gateway on your computer, and your route POP requests through it. It has a web-based configuration tool, and allows for many, many buckets. No IMAP support yet, but I'm waiting! It can be a little resource intensive, though.

    If you were on Outlook (which you apparently are not, I know), I might recommend SpamBayes. It works reasonably well, but *only* provides for a spam bucket.
