  There are several possibilities to fight spam:
Statistical methods try to categorize emails based on header, subject and/or content. To be succesful the user has to classify emails during a learning phase.
Another method is to make use of the user community and build a list of email senders that have been revealed as spammers. Not so long ago this method had been in the news, because someone had put GMX on this list. For a while no GMX user was able to emails to inboxes that were protected by software using this approach.
A useful approach is the classification of emails using white and black lists and keywords. This can be combined with an analasis of email header and content to classify spam emails.
