Popfile, with the Outclass UI in Outlook so you get nice classify buttons on the Outlook toolbar. http://www.vargonsoft.com/Outclass/
Outlook 2003. Honestly - I haven't had a piece of spam escape the Junk Mail folder in months.
K9 - it's Popfile, but written in C instead of Perl.
Own domain + disposable e-mail addresses. No lost e-mail, and no hassle with filters.
With Popfile I came for the spam filtering, but I stayed for the automatic mail filing. Popfile can do Bayesian filtering into different mail folders. So I have mail automatically classified as personal, work, mailing lists etc.
Mailwasher: see things on the server before you download them. don't wastre bandwidth downloading crap. don't get viruses: http://www.mailwasher.net/
Too much work. I just want to filter out spam and classifiy my messages, not get involved choosing what to download or which email address to dispose.
I've had a couple of false positives with the spam filter in Thunderbird. Maybe 2-3 that I've noticed since I installed it several months ago.
I've had 2 false positives in about 6 months with SpamBayes but to be fair they looked a bit spammy at first glance. Both were from a general mailbox which runs at about 60-70% spam.

ASSP - Anti Spam SMTP Proxie
Symantec mail gateway. Scrubs all of our incoming mail for viruses and nasty attachments (.pif, scr, etc) and then forwards to our exchange box. It does blacklists as well as it's own system for detecting spam. The best part is it's free. (Free if you have a bunch of Windows systems on your network you need antivirus on).
This is an aside, but SPAM, as used in the title of this thread, is a registered trademark referring to Hormel's pork, ham, salt, water, sodium nitrite product, while spam, lower case, refers to junk email.
I've been using www.SpamStopsHere.com for the past year and a half for our family domain name.
