Fastmail (www.fastmail.fm) paid offerings include excellent Spam
recognition and filtering capability. All inbound messages are given a
Spam rating. You configure simple (or complex) filters to deal with them
accordingly. I was getting in the order of 30-50/day with Spam scores
>7. After filtering and monitoring for a month it was abundantly evident
that it was safe to delete them all so I turned on the kill switch.
Other similar services exists. Tuffmail and Runbox, for example. I have
been a long time user of Fastmail but can't speak from personal
experience about the others.

I used 1and1 for awhile, but found I was being bombed so heavily
with spam on my domain email account that I had to do something.
I switched to IX Webhosting, thinking that might be better, but
unfortunately, it didn't seem to make any difference... So, does
anyone have any recommendations regarding spam on domain email?
I use IMAP email, which seems to be part of the problem, as no
client-side spam filter I've seen can process IMAP mail because
with IMAP you only download message headers at first -- with POP
the entire message is downloaded and can therefore be parsed by
a spam filter.
