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.
