I have been without spam for some time now, but it is coming back, I have had one or two several times a week. This morning I had four. I used to have a very good Bayesian spam filter. When I changed to dsl spam all but disappeared. I found the ISP was deleting some good email, so I told them to let my mail through unfiltered. Now I would like to install a good Bayesian spam filter. I have looked at spamassassin and it seems to be useful only if you use Outlook or a server. I looked over the configuration and did not make a lot of sense to me. (however, many things no longer makes sense to me) I can check the ports but I am not sure how to set up the assassin. The other one SpamBayes and it appeared to be pretty difficult to install also. Any have an easy to use Bayesian Spam filter besides those two?? Frank uses or used to use SpamAssassin which seems to require Perl to install, (i do
      not

      I just use Thunderbird and it does a pretty decent job. Ask the isp if
      they have a challenge response system available. Those work pretty well
      too.
