One of the reasons I won't touch imap in my setup.  Here, its all mine to do 
with as I see fit once it has been sucked by fetchmail, and passed the 
procmail/spamassassn gauntlet.  I rather like it that way.  That may cost me 
a false positive occasionally because I have procmail /dev/null anything with 
5 * in the X-Spam-Level header, but since I derive no income from any of it, 
that doesn't bother me a bit that I may have missed the email telling me a 
rich uncle died and left me 700 million of something. ;-)

I also train for spam daily, dropping that which isn't wanted into a spam 
folder, and a cron script then trains it that the stuff in that folder IS 
spam.  It works slowly but eventually in every case but one so far.

No, I don't have a drinking problem.

I drink, I get drunk, I fall down.

No problem!
