Hey,

My Dad runs his own business and has a POP3 Email account. About 5 Months ago our Norton Internet Security subscription ran out so we had loads of spam.
He downloaded a Free copy of SpamFighter. It has lasted fine until someone sent an email saying that his business shouldn't be using software for Personal Use.

He doesn't want to pay for any Anti-Spam Software and has asked me to try and find some Free Anti-Spam Software available for business use.

We use Office Outlook 2007

Thanks

I have never used it nor do I endorse it, but I googled using your phrase and came up with http://www.spamfighter.com/

SPAMfighter Standard is a free tool for Outlook, Outlook Express and Windows Mail that automatically and efficiently filters spam and phishing fraud.

If you need a spam filter for your home/office PC or server, you have come to the right place.

Let us know if it works for you

Is there any other Free Software available FOR BUSINESSES?

you cannot stop ANYONE from sending you rude or XXXX e mails but it is how you deal WITH the receipt of such that is the issue

you CAN stop them from reaching the computer ; mailwasher may help in this respect; why not try it and see? it is easy to set up
