I use a mail server called "Argosoft Mail Server" (simple eh?) it has what
is known as a 'white list'. All incoming mail gets put on hold and an email
sent back to the source with a link to click. If they click the link,
they're a real person, I get the e-mail. If not, in a couple days, the mail
is deleted. This also gives me time to check the folder for msg's from
automated systems I do want. Check into white lists. Very effective.

I'll share with you guys my spam strategy. I use a web mail interface at
my ISP first for a while and teach the filter what I don't want.
My filter is very simple. Any spam I receive, the sender's domain name
gets added to my filter list. It works great! Secondly, I use my gmail
account for signing up for stuff if I have to register online. My policy
for my mail email account is: "One strike and your out!" So far I
haven't needed to create an exclusion list.
