If you're not "bound to" IMAP, you might be interested in a utility I
wrote, called Mailfilter:  http://mailfilter.sourceforge.net/

It connects to your ISP, kills all the junk and leaves behind a smaller
and clean mailbox for you to download.  Saves you time and worries.

Right now it only works with POP3 though.

I'm using it together with fetchmail, but people also use it with KMail
or Evolution directly.  A matter of taste, I guess.

Hope it helps,
