So far I have tried Spam Fighter but it conflicts with other software in my computer. I like spambully, but people go to spam that should not, even though it was trained to put emails in inbox. Personally, I would like to trust that all my spam is spam. I am looking for a filter that interfaces with outlook, doesn't change any settings, and is user friendly. I have tried cloudmark and might end up trying it again, but it seems to be so-so.

I use MailWasher Pro but there is a free version too. http://www.mailwasher.net/

Malwasher is a good program but I dont think it interfaces directly with Outlook.
Its a filter so run it first. You can blacklist entire domains, which is real nice.
Once it is trained a little bit it works great
In the beginning there was the command line.

As you said mailwasher is a good program, I do agree. However what I am looking for is the spam filter working inside of outlook, separating spam and good emails. I have used spamfighter with fairly good results however if conflicts with my wife's computer. Seems to interfer with Goggle Synch. Spam Bully seemed good with the interface, however I'm annoyed that good emails end up in spam even when I put them on the allowed list.
I do want to find a spam filter to use, maybe I'm hoping for too much. I even tried Cloudmark, but really wasn't that impressed. <_<
