email filter

I have a user that was wondering if there was any email filter spam blocker that could analyze email before it hits their outlook account.  We are using a pop email account and I can go to the web version and blacklist subjects but that does not seem to help.  It should go through there first and see that the subject is blacklisted and then not deliver to the outlook account.  This is not happening.  The spam filter in outlook is working though.  All of these emails are going to the trash but this user wants them not to even get to the outlook account.  Are there any 3rd party add ons that can be installed on a computer that scans all incoming email and then does not allow certain emails from getting to the outlook account or does someone have a better way of doing this?
