Spam suggestions?

I’ve been using SpamCop for the past year, and have been fairly happy with the service. It’s $30/year, and it catches the vast majority of spam sent my way. But before I renew, is anyone aware of services I can use that might be better or easier than SpamCop?

SpamCop works by having my mail forwarded from my personal account to their servers, where they then process their blacklist, analyze for suspicious content, etc. I then set up my mail client to poll SpamCop’s servers, where I get my non-spam e-mail.

I’m looking for a server-based solution — I don’t want to download the e-mail then process for spam. SpamCop may be the right answer — but I’d like to know what my options are. Do any of you have good experience with other systems that I should look at?

  1. I've started using Thunderbird as my email client and have been pretty pleased with its built in spam control.
