Spam Filters

Can anyone recommend a good spam filter that works as a plugin with Outlook Express? I need one that would move spam to a separate folder as I can't afford to miss e-mails a program mistakes as spam. I'm currently using Spam Inspector, which is great, aside from the fact that it always runs, even when Outlook Express isn't running. The process itself along with a sub-process use up more system resources than EXPLORER itself, and the same as an open IE window. That's a joke. I'd like to find an OE spam plugin that opens and closes along with OE and doesn't hog precious resources. What are your experiences like with Spam Filters? I've noticed Spam Inspector regularly misses several types of spam, although it does catch well over 90% of spam messages, and regards several types of valid e-mails, like newsletters as spam on some occasions.

Thanks,
Shawn

Perhaps Popfile can help?

Also, I just recently switched from SpamBayes to MailWasherPro to handle my spam in Outlook. The nice thing about MailWasher is it deletes the spam off the server directly so you don't have to download it. It can also keep "backup" copies of the messages in case you want to look through it every so often.
