    Most malware packages are double click and install.

    Mine isn't. Have you tried configuring spamassassin?

    Doesn't stop him from bringing his home laptop into the office for help.

    Well it isn't terribly difficult to be more skilled than the masses out
    there.

    Precisely, perfect for the masses that don't know what they are double
    clicking and installing. =)

    I'm careful with filters like that because I never know if they will
    filter out the wrong thing. I don't trust it. My e-mail provider also has
    options like that which I could configure to filter out spam ahead of
    time to where I wouldn't even need to download it in the first place.

    But again, they warn of the possibility that legitimate mail can in
    theory be deleted as well. So I don't use it.

    Personally I prefer white-lists. Essentially, everything I know to be
    good automatically gets moved to pre-determined folders in my inbox. So
    about 80% or more of my legitimate mail automatically gets categorized
    and I don't need to wade through spam to read it.

    Only for the remainder do I then need to quickly glance over the spam
    that came in for the day and fish it out.

    Ah yes. And soo effective against new malware. Yes, really. They are so good
    they will detect malware weeks before it is actually written
    It also explains why those massive amounts of infested machines exist

    Idiot

    Feel free to explain how spamassassin prevents a single spam from being
    *sent* by those infested wintendo machines, "true linux advocate", "kernel
    hacker", "emacs user", "swapfile expert", "X specialist", "CUPS
    guru", "USB-disk server admin", "newsreader magician" and "hardware maven"
    Hadron Quark, aka Hans Schneider, aka Damian O'Leary

    Short answer is: It doesn't. Those millions of infested windows machines
    continue to send spam.
