I'm thinking of upgrading to Outlook 2003 (currently using Outlook 2000 under XP). The only reason for this upgrade would be that I've read that Microsoft has built in a fairly good spam filter.

However, someone just told me that the Outlook 2003 spam filter only works if you're using Outlook in conjunction with an Exchange email server. Our email is through our webhosting company (Verio) and therefore is POP type email.

Will the spam filter work with POP email? If so, how well does it work?

Thanks!

Not true. You do not need an Exchange sever for Outlook2003 to use it's built in spam filter.

Personally I use SpamBayes. It's free, very simple to use, and it pretty much catches all my spam. Much prefer the programs that integrate with Outlook since it it a lot easier to use.
