Study finds most spam filters fall short

Spam filters used by several popular Internet email providers do a relatively poor job of preventing junk email from reaching their users’ inboxes, a recent study found.

eTesting labs tested 15 email services and found AT&T WorldNet was the most effective at filtering spam, blocking 73 percent of unsolicited junk messages sent. The closest competitors were America Online, which blocked 40 percent of test spam messages, and Yahoo mail, which blocked 36 percent.
