Best Mail Provider for spam protection?

I get hundreds of spam email daily, and a lot of it is getting through the spam filter for my AOL account. Is there a better mail provider that is good with spam, so I got very little? I've been looking into Yahoo and they look pretty good, but there might be some better ones out there.

In my experience Gmail's built-in spam detection is really good. But if it missed anything, you can always add a custom keyword filter to block them.

Strider is right. Gmail does the job very good. I don't get any spam at all. On the other side, Yahoo! just can't handle it...

Yes, Gmail is the best. They have various filters to protect your mail box from the spam. I am very tired with the Yahoo as it gives lots of spam.

Some time I am getting spam mail from GMAIL also, like hair loss, find your partner etc. That time I mark the mail the and click report spam option.
