[thelist] Server-side spam blocking (independent app)

Hello, all.

I have just changed web hosts.  While they do run Spam Assassasin for 
general spam flagging, unfortunately, they do not offer any type of client 
(me) custom email filter controls, such as the IF-THEN available with IMail 
(or SmartMax).  I made good use of these with my other host.

Yes, of course, I use Outlook Express rules, but these do not keep certain 
emails from being downloaded from the server.  (I got one "friend", who will 
not remove me from his mailing list, who sends emails with large 
attachments, which choke my dial-up connection.)

This is a longshot, but: Anyone know of any 3rd party (free?) add-on 
application that I might be able to run from my control panel if my host 
would agree?  [Have no idea what and how it would work.]  I have shared Win 
(IIS 5) hosting.

Else, I'll have to remove that email address from Outlook accounts and read 
messages through webmail.  A great inconvenience, as this email account is 
my main personal email account.
