Question How can nonprogrammers filter spamassassin headers?... spam messages to another file

For nonprogrammers maybe dyslexic, or maybe ADD, how can spamassassin headers be filtered so that all or most of the spam messages, rather than mixed in with email, all or most go to a separate email file that can be checked for any false positives?... RMAIL in EMACS and from time to time mutt are used for email

Single session
a. How can this be done during a single RMAIL in EMACS session?...

Existing commands
b. What commands are already available for this kind of thing?...

Setting up a general routine
c. How can nonprogrammers set it up in an automatic routine?...

I'd recommend looking at either Maildrop or Procmail which both provide mechanisms to filter your incoming mail.


emacs, false, spamassassin
