Following up myself...

Server-side filtering would be great for getting messages sorted into
folders so I see them where I want them from all the different machines
I use to view mail.  But it doesn't remove the need for spam filtering
on the client.  We have a pretty good spam filter here, but about 5-10%
of the mail that gets past it to my inbox is still caught by

I wonder if this will eventually be a feature of the OpenChange
MAPI client library.  I doubt the OWA interface that the current
connector uses provides that access on the server side.
