Hotmail removes 98% of all spam with SmartScreen system
Every e-mail system has spam, and Hotmail is no exception. However, our SmartScreen™ spam-fighting system is one of the most effective in the industry. This post will give you the inside scoop on how we use it to fight the menace that is spam, and what you can do to help.
Why do people send spam in the first place? It’s simple: for the money. Spam is big, big business. Much of it is also illegal, but, unfortunately, that hasn’t kept people from sending it.
Hotmail removes 98% of all spam before it can even reach your Inbox.

That's really a good news. To avoid spam, I use a separate email ID to leave in comments box, & software promotions.

I use Hotmail as my main e-mail. I'd hate to see how much spam I got if it didn't filter the 98%. I have spent countless hours over the past few years filtering out address's. Kinda ****s though, now I'm less of a daily billionaire LOL

Gmail in my opinion has the better spam filter.
I stopped using Hotrmail several years ago since the most of SPAM I recieved was not filtered.
Post Scriptum: I use ultrafunk PopCorn antispam client, freeware, Windows 7 compatible, multiaccount, and exploit/virus proof. It doesn't use any filter, you may simply read your e-mail directly form server, then decide what to delete and what not

I'm happy with Gmail
Actually as email client I use Foxmail. It's enough secure but I think to change it soon because some errors that appear sometimes during exit of program.

ultrafunk / popcorn mail client
I use Gmail with Windows Mail
The new Thunderbird 3.0 looks kinda neat though...
