Identifying Spam

Hi, my ol2003 is identifying spam nearly perfectly. At my co-workers-PC (same company setup with exchange server, automatic MS updates), about 20 spam mails will go through every day.
Are there any possibilities to configure the spam filter that it seem to work better on my PC?
Is there a way to check wether spam filter was updated correctly?

Greetings, chriswies !

Check the spam level.  Is your set to Medium or High. Is your co-worker spam level set to medium or high. Is there any Blacklist on your Spam Filter and not his.

The other possiblility is that the username is simplier for co-worker than yours. The more complex the username, the more difficult will spammers fine it.

Best wishes!

OK, your hint to check the Level is great. Didn't know that so far. I looked around and found the setting.
Will check tomorrow and let you know.

Thanks for posting again and putting me back on track. To be honest, the 'next day' passed rapidly ;-) and I did not check the topic.
I'll do next monday.

Ok, I checked it out. He has the same level??! Don't know why.
Our admin implemented a whitelist and the problem turned out to be solved.
But I think your hint with the level is worth the points :-)
