My account got hacked on Myspace and now I get 10 fucking spam e-mails a day.

Does Office outlook have a spam filter I am missing, or is there a free spam blocker I can download somewheres on teh intartubes?

But they send from different address every time, so every time I block one, the others just come right through..

Is there a filter I can use?

You could setup a rule to automatically delete messages with certain subjects, but even that won't be perfect. Spam-catching can be a MAJOR pain in the ass. If your provider isn't doing it, there are various downloads for Outlook that in theory will do it for you, but I don't know anything about them. Probably just get you more spam...(ETA: Though Norton and AVG and other full 'protection suites' generally have some sort of spam filtering function.)

Or just get a Google account, and stop worrying about it!

My school email has Barracuda Networks spam filter, which actually works pretty good. My other account is gmail, which has it built in. Sorry.

No, it's actually hardware based (and somewhat expensive at that). However, it does seem to work good (at least for my account).

It's free and works well, there is a constanly updated data base it builds upon, I really like it on OE.
