    The problem may be that he's submitting his email address to third parties or websites that submit lists of email addresses to third parties. What I do to avoid that is 1) read the privacy policies of websites I'm submitting my email address to, and 2) have an alternate email address to use in those cases.

    What version of Outlook does he have? 2003 has some really good spam filter options that I use.
