I highly recommend "Cloudmark Spamnet".  It's commercial (not free), but I
received a copy as a package when I purchased a firewall for my home

I've had this address for 7 years and I received on the order of 600-700
spam each week.  Only 2 or 3 of these (on average) slip by Spamnet.  It
works on the concept that every time you block a spam it uploads that
information and uses it to update everyone else's version.  As soon as the
first few people manually block a particular spam everyone else's is
automatically blocked.

I have mine set to put the spam in a "junk-mail" folder, and I did have to
go through periodically and unblock messages at the start.  The bonus is
that once you unblock them they stayed unblocked.  It currently very rarely
blocks legit messages.
