Spamfilters

Γιασου!

Well, what are the specifications of your PC? Yes, piping the mails through a filter needs CPU capacity.

I use Kmail as well with spamassasin and bogofilter. It makes sense to combine and train those two filters. Sometimes I discover spam-mails in the trash that were put there by spamassasin, some by bogofilter. Using only one program reduces the effectivity.

CRM114 and SpamBayes are available with Kmail too.

If use lots of filters, make sure these filters are on top. Otherwise another one might apply and the filter-process is aborted.

But beforehand, try to use the spam-filter of your ISP (if it has one) The one of my ISP filters about 95% of the spam-mail. This reduces the load of spam that arrives in your inbox tremendously.

looks like you've just not configured SA right... use SA, it's good.

kde and spamassissin do not "work together" they have nothing in common. you say you've tried spamassassin but not said a single thing about HOW you used it... i hope you've actually read some documentation for once? http://spamassassin.apache.org/doc.html

I use Mozilla Thunderbird. After it learns whats junk and whats not, it does a decent job. Though nothing beats a human filtering spam.

If you get too much spam, it is time to read the email for unsubscribing.

try the documentations (Getting Started or something) on the SA website

I also agree that SA can be very fast. In fact, I am running a close-to-default installation of SA on my Pentium III server (underclocked to 300mhz!) and it runs quite well. But of course, it depends on the volume of email you get, too.
