Best free (or reasonably priced) spam blocking program (for Outlook XP)

What do you guys think the best free spam blocker is that is currently available. I've been using SpamBayes, but lately it is not catching nearly the amount of spam it once did. I've checked for updates but the March 2005 update (version 1.0.4) is listed as the latest version.

It is just no longer cutting it for me. A good free spam blocking program would be ideal, but if there's not a good free one out there I would be open to paying a reasnable charge for one that will work very well.

Thanks in advance...

Greetings, needvirushelp !

Spam Bully is a very good antispam filter

It has Bayesian Spam Filter - Intelligently knows which emails you've received are good and which are spam by using artificial intelligence and server blacklists. Makes sure good emails make it to your Inbox.

Best wishes!
