Can i use spamassassin to filter a remote pop3 mailbox?

Should be able to. You'd have to set up you MTA (mail transfer agent- postfix, sendmail, or whatever you're using) to receive the mail. Then set up SpamAssassin to do it's thing.

Here is an article on how to setup spamassassin and evolution http://www.inigo-tech.com/Members/ka...n-spamassassin
and here is a hands on guide written by my co-worker and friend on how to deploy spamassassin for sendmail on a Sun box, should be pretty much similar for any *NIX setup
