I finally got around to ditching bogofilter last night, and setting up spamassassin last night. I'm pretty happy that as of this morning, only one spam got through to my inbox, of the approximatly 30 spam emails that my account received. In addition, all 5 or 6 of my non-spam messages made it into my inbox.
The thing that prompted all this was my new Treo. I want to use it to access email, but I don't want to be wasting my data bandwidth downloading spam.
So far, so good.
I'm also trying out ChatterEmail, which seems pretty good so far. It's got a neat feature for "pseudo-push", where if the Treo recieves a text-message with a certain piece of text in it, will cause it to check for new email. I've configured my mail server to use the Telus email->SMS gateway to send this text-message whenever I receive new email. Less than a minute later, my Treo vibrates twice to inform me of this new email. Pretty freaking cool.
