I'm sharing bogofilter for my Linux MUA's POP accounts. Learning as
ham/spam works very well, without workarounds like selecting the
original mail. I'm usually even not using any filter of the email
providers on the server side, excepted of banning some very tenacious
spammers, that appear very seldom and sometimes I turn spam filers of
the server on, if there should be one of those seldom flood waves of
spams that can't easily be banned. So IMO bogofilter is the better
choice for a MUA. I guess spamassasin is more useful for servers.
