[NAFEX] Spam and Virus

My ISP filters out email with virus attachments, and
evaluates email to determine if they are SPAM or not.
Email with a virus attachment just gets deleted at the ISP
level and I never see it.
All incoming emails are evaluated against a number of SPAM
criteria and given a numeric score. Email below a certain
score are passed through normally, those above the target
score, the "email subject" is prefixed with the word "spam",
and I redirect that to a different folder than my inbox.
I review the spam just to make sure the filter is perfoming,
and so far it catches 99% of all spam. It works very
well. In time, instead of prefixing the subject line and me
reviewing it, I will instruct the ISP to just delete it.
The ISP asks that you review the spam filter for 60-90 days,
just to be sure it is not tagging mail you want incorrectly
