    Whenever I come across a spam-filter software or application (from download.com) I find that they function only with Outlook and Outlook Express.
    Is there any spam-filter software for web based emails like yahoo or hotmail?

    Web base e-mails like Yahoo and MyWay have there own spam filters. Any SPAM you receive, you can identify it as SPAM and it will be blocked after that.

    MailWasher can block SPAM for OE or Hotmail accounts. There is a version you can buy, but I've been using the free version for a couple of years with OE. You can get either version here:

    The free version is limited to one account and doesn't work with Hotmail.

    I know that web based emails do have their personal spam guard systems but I don't think they work pretty well. I've been blocking and marking spam mails from my hotmail and yahoo accounts but they keep on coming.
    Any fool-proof spam software for these web based emails?
