Spam Filter for Web Mail

Can some tell or suggest how I can have a very good spam filter for users who uses web mail. The email provider we use does not have a good spam filter as a result our web mail inbox is always is filled with spam messages. We use POP3 and no exchange server. Is there any online spam filtering cloud based software that we can use to filter our emails from our email provider?
As always, thanks in advance.

You can use Mail.com as your provider. They have excellent spam control. In terms of spam in my inbox, I see maybe 2 or 3 per year.  I use Mail.com

Another alternative is to ask your email provider to install Spam Assassin. That works well also and with proper setup should delete of 95% of spam. I forward email from Mail.com to my local email provider and he has Spam Assassin installed.

Is mail.com not a 1&1.com company? This is the same provider that we uses that has this lousy spam filtering. They do not offer any other better spam filtering other than the basic one that offer.

if you can get pop or imap from your mail provider.. the easy way is to create a gmail account than then have gmail get these messages and you can view them in gmail using gmail's spam filters.

I have been using Mail.com for over 15 years. Yes Mail.com is 1&1. I wouldn't see less than 10 spam emails annually as a big issue.

Spam Assassin works also (your email provider needs to run it).

Gmail works also - I have a Gmail account.  Also look at Outlook.com.

"Spam Assassin works also (your email provider needs to run it)."..... Mr. Hurst, you know if I could  tell my email provider what spam filter to implement, I wouldn't be seeking help here. Again 1&1 knows what spam Assassin does best, so no one needs to tell them to implement that.
What say you?

My main local email provider uses Spam Assassin (http://spamassassin.apache.org/). Your provided could look at the web site to see how to implement that.

Mail.com (1&1) does not use Spam Assassin - they have their own filter. You need to be sure it is enabled but it is one the best there is (judging by my own results).
