sure - I only use cyrus-imapd with sieve which is server based
filtering/handling so it's transparent to me - I don't see the e-mail
until it's been filtered.

I've got a bunch of rules...a 'wc -l' of my sieve script runs 497 lines
which I can tell averages about 6 lines per rule so I clearly have 80 or
so rules which are going to take some time if an e-mail drops all the
way to the last rule (which isn't a place that anyone sending me a
personal e-mail wants to end up).

Clearly running those rules against every e-mail takes time and none of
these rules have anything to do with junk mail except if the header
contains an entry tagging it as spam from MailScanner/spamassassin it
goes into my SPAMBOX.

In the end though, we use filters to organize incoming e-mail so even if
it does take a little longer to get automation, I'm not sure what the
problem is (except for as I said, when evolution used to use
spamassassin for junk detection and then the problem was more like oom
issues).
