      Have you tried Popfile (ver 0.20.0 just came out). After a few days training
      it should be able to keep the SPAM you see to an absolute minimum.
      http://popfile.sourceforge.net/

      After a few false tries its even able to recognize those spams that slip
      through on some Yahoo groups.
      you know the ones: "Look at my hot pictures at
      http://geocities.somewhere/somewhere "

      I find it slower than K9 but *much* more accurate - YMMV
      http://keir.net/k9.html

      I've been using:
      ISP --> Popfile --> K9 --> OE
      and in parallel with that:
      ISP --> Popfile --> Poptray

      I'm only using the K9 for comparison/interest - I'll probably dump it soon
      but keep the Poptray for quick notifications of what's coming in and
      eventually to dump spam before it gets to OE.

      Regards ... Alec
