Pretty straightforward...what's the best spam filter for Mac's Mail program?

My email address has gotten on a list somewhere and I get around 100 spam emails a day. It's the worst. For a while I would use Mail's Rules to teach the program to trash emails with certain words in the title but the spam is insidious, varying just enough to slip through day after day.
I've recently become aware that there are services you can sign up for that will filter your email in different ways. I'm having a pretty good experience with a free trial of SaneBox, which catches most of the spam, but I'm not going to pay $100/year for the service.
Are there freeware equivalents? Anyone got a better solution? I've heard about Mailstrom but I think it's also a paid service. Any suggestions welcome. Thank you!
