    Windows email app with good junkmail filter?

    Hi guys, I'm trying to sort my mum out with a good email app as she is getting 60 or so spam messages a day. And she doesn't want to change her address. I am on mac so no idea what's good to use for windows these days. Any ideas? Thanks in advance

    The best spam filters are on the mail server not in the client side software. You can create a junk senders list within most email clients but it doesn't help that much. If she gets the amount of spam you are talking about it's definitely worth changing her address. I never get any spam with my Gmail account.

    Hi greg, thanks for the advice. My mac mail app works well for filtering out spam into a junkmail folder and I think I'm after something similar for windows. It won't stop it but it'll make it a bit easier to manage. Wish we could just change the address but its not really an option. I've got a gmail address as well and I agree - it does do well on that end of things.

    I have used Thunderbird on PC it made by the firefox boys, and has a solid junk mail system.. pretty good and free

    Thanks for the heads up - I have been having the same problem. Tried this and it looks fantastic. My boss gets about 200 Viagra type e-mails a day. Looks like this will reduce (pardon the pun) this amount drastically. Is quite easy to set up and you can download themes too.
