Web Mail Spam Filters Still Lacking

In terms of identifying spam using complicated methods, the three major providers do very well. But at a very simple level they are failing...

I've signed up with the Microsoft Partner program. It appears to be some behemoth covering all professionals who work with or sell Microsoft products.
