Mine is POP3

For all folders I use, except for inbox, either the individual sender
or the list is whitelisted.

I can recall maybe 3 spam in all the folders in 10 yrs.

All other spam and other crap are in the inbox and it is on these
mails that the filter would be run.

Condition: test "/usr/bin/bogofilter -u < %F"
Action:    color 3 move "#mh/Mailbox/inbox/SPAMBOX" 

Then I would use an action for mark spam|ham, unlearn spam|ham and

I used that before there was bogofilter-plugin, but have used the
plugin since its incorporation.
Unlike bsfilter of windows, bogofilter on linux takes almost no time.

There many right ways to use bogofilter.
The specifics are just a matter of preference.
