Well I do it like this:

spam filter on our server does trap a few spams, then
I forward my mail automatically from that server to my
Yahoo account (that I pay for).  The yahoo address
doesn't do anything for my academic profile but it's a
much better spam filter than the one they have on the

So I have layered spam filters in this way. I have to
say Yahoo has impressed me. I do have to train it a
bit. It sometimes puts AoIR messages in the Bulk
folder so I haven't trained it too well.

Only two spammers I have to block their messages more
than once  - and that's in the last 4 years. For
$25/year US it's well worth it.

Cheers, Denise
