I use Yahoo and find it has some excellent spam filters. You just have
to spend a little time "teaching" them what you consider spam and what
you don't.

I have to agree with you on Yahoo spam. I think they have the best of 
any provider (once Spamguard is "trained")... in fact the only thing i 
now find in my spam box IS THEIR JUNK mail [LOL]. Yahoo introduced a 
new interface claiming it's twice as fast when in fact it's 
considerably slower than their 'Classic' mail and slower than any other 
provider. As one can't use imap with Yahoo - today that is a big 
negative in my view.

When it comes to receiving spam i find the main perpetrators are these 
Forums. Strange how as soon as one joins several forums one is flooded 
with spam - i assume they sell the email addresses. I now have one 
email address for signing up to these things - strange why i don't 
receive spam in my other accounts!!!!!!

Regarding the comments about free email - i have to say that i've found 
gmail and aol excellent. Gmail spam guard is excellent... but strange 
how one receives so much! AOL spam guard not so good but adequate.
