Is there a software program which does not accept spam but returns spam back to the sender as not deliverable?

Do not bounce spam. The senders are not usually the spammers and it just increases traffic on an already clogged internet. Surely deleting is not too onerous a task in the year 2004? Bouncing also shows that your address is in use ;-))

always having to mark new spam as unwanted, Ihave been trying this new free (for now anyway) sevice click here from filterspam. It involves a couple of relatively minor changes to your email settings in outlook/outlook express but so far it has done an excellent job for me.

georgemac - mailwasher has an option to check mail sources against known spammer DNS servers; this generally marks most of it for me. Somewhere in the advanced options I think.
