I have to agree, a relatively simple IMAP+SpamAssassin setup works
pretty well (in the end using a Smartphone to access email is the norm
and not the exception these days). Its Bayesian classifier can also be
trained for better results, you automate this task by creating
cronjobs that scan your dedicated junk folder to improve results. It's
so good that I stopped using Bogofilter, which has the advantage of not
downloading all mail bodies which helps a lot in my specific use case.
