I am in need of a good, simple pop spam filter.

Here is the catch: This would be for a recently widowed person who does not know much about her computer(her husband took care of that stuff).

Ideally I would recommend going to Thunderbird and training her email box, but what I need is something that would filter most spam out on its own that can plug into outlook express or outlook.

I know there is no single silver bullet that would get rid of all the spam, but I'd like to be able to cut most of it out.

Thanks in advance

The best place to catch Spam is before it even downloads into your computer. Most E-mail providers have Spam blockers (or their servers would be inundated); many of these Spam blockers allow the user to identify E-mail that gets through the automatic blocker as Spam.
Check your provider's website for additional Spam information and the user services it provides.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
