There is a collection of perl and python stuff called Spamassassin that 
you may be able to make work on that redmond based (spit, leaves a bad 
taste in my mouth to even come that close to sayng it) box of yours 
George.  I use it here on this linux box, and it catches and sorts to 
the JunqueMail folder, about 200 a day, with a very low false positive 
ratio, maybe one a day.  Its trainable so it will not recognize that 
same FP agan if you feed it spam (or ham) it missed and it will 
recognize it next time.  Bayes based for the most part although I also 
use rules_du_jour to keep the database up to date.

It only takes me about 10 minutes a day for disposing of its output.
The rest of the time, with anyplace from 500-2000 messages a day, is 
relatively painless.  But I am on too many lists too.

Cheers, Gene
People having trouble with vz bouncing email to me should add the word
'online' between the 'verizon', and the dot which bypasses vz's
stupid bounce rules.  I do use spamassassin too. :-)
