spamassassin is a popular choice.
At home, I use postfix + clamav + spamassassin + clamassassin.
At work, postfix + clamav + spamassassin + amavisd-new.

You can start at the spamassassin site. Google is also good.

I was assuming that you have a mail server. Seems that you don't. I don't know anything about anomy sanitizer, so I can't comment on it. But, I found a lot of info in Google regarding your situation.

Kmail has configurable filters. Set it put emails from addresses you know (friends) into one folder, and all others in another folder. You then can get most email spam free, and only occasionally do you have to dig through spam to find a message.
