bogofilter looks good.  Can I integrate it with Sylpheed?  How do you use it?

Hi Marty,

Have you tried bogofilter?  Quote from bogofilter home page:

"Bogofilter is a mail filter that classifies mail as spam or ham
(non-spam) by a statistical analysis of the message's header and
content (body). The program is able to learn from the user's
classifications and corrections."

I've had pretty good luck with it with the most difficult spam being
that with a big page of random text.  I get over 90% of the spam and
very seldom get a valid message classified as spam.  (Just often
enough that I have to scan the spams before deleting.)
