Unlike real life battles with bladed and explosive weapons, the idea to fight spam is not very clear. Many competing tech companies are in the market to introduce the idea to fight spam in behalf of the users and the enterprise. We are not just here to fight spam, but to fight crime, as sending spam is a crime in many countries in the world. Many countries have legislated cybercrime laws, which always include criminalizing deliberate sending of mass junk email.
Spammers are not sending junk mails for the popularity - huge money motivates them. For every user click in their spam messages is a win for their wallets. Spammers will not take the effort of people to fight spam sitting down. They have started the retaliation of countering the action of many to fight spam, by deliberate misspellings of spam keywords. How many times we have seen spam words like Viagra misspelled? They have to do that in order to bypass the filters in their goal to counter our desire to fight spam.
Mainstream email clients like Microsoft Outlook and Mozilla Thunderbird have rudimentary engine that fight spam. It is through the use of "Junk folder", where the anti spam algorithm moves the spam email to the "Junk" quarantined location. The vulnerability of a built-in anti spam feature of the email clients is it is tied with the version. The newer the version, the more sophisticated the filter to fight spam is. Unfortunately, not everyone can upgrade to the next version as soon as it is available, especially in the enterprise setting where a strict upgrade cycle schedule is observed.
This situation can be fixed by installation of an anti spam system that fights spam using a special service hosted separately from the other servers.
