It's a never ending battle, I must get 40 a day, maybe more. It's
impossible to filter, since they even fake addresses. You could, however,
probably filter for stuff sent from Taiwan, China, Russia, etc., unless you
do business there, since a lot of it comes out of those places.
If it takes long to come in, consider getting an email program like
Eudora. It's only $30 or so, but you can filter out a lot of stuff and
also have it refuse to download files over any specific size (for instance,
mine is set so that anything over 40k won't download until I expressly tell
it to, or delete it from the server). Plus, it has the added advantage of
being immune to a lot of the virii that you catch using Microsoft Outlook.
