You can't.

I'm using POP, too. I disabled spam filtering by the ISP web
interfaces. Unfortunately ISP tend to ignore it, they still move a
few mails to the spam folder and indeed, there are usually false
positives inside the spam folder.

For important office accounts I check the spam folder using the ISP web
interfaces on a regular basis.

I'm using bogofilter to filter spam by my MUAs (Claws and Evolution).

_If_ massive spam bombing happens, I either temporarily enable the ISP
spam filtering and/or ban some addresses on the server side.

However, massive spam bombing (hundred of mails within a few seconds)
seldom happen and if it happens, the ISP spam filtering usually gains
nothing. Usually I receive that less spam, that bogofilter used by the
MUAs is good enough for me.
