We (University of Alberta Libraries) have been testing a custom built spam filter provided by our Computing and Network Services Department. All external (non library) email goes through this mail filter. Anything that appears as Junk is automatically moved to the Junk Folder. Users have options over levels of filtering (I personally use the second highest) Users can also set up exclude lists for certain domains which has been helpful with certain listservs such as library juice. Once per week I get sent a text summary of what is found in my junk mail folder. After a few weeks the junk is automatically purged - or the user can delete the junk him/her self. My spam has gone from 150 per day to 1 or 2 per week.
