SpamAssassin is excellent and can be tweaked to cull out anything you detest.
It never had any false positives (for me) in over a year, so consider this a
kind recommendation. SA is free and it comes with Apache.
Spam rose tremendously in the past week or two, at least over here.
Compromised Windows box account for ~80% of the spam, as usual. It's
frustrating. I can no longer even check the queue because it's too time
consuming, so let's hope somebody does _something_. *sigh*
