I've now been using PopFile for less than a week and it's sorting
pretty, not to say very, good. In fact I turned off the central
spamfilter on my account, as PopFile works so good...

I'm also installing this applet on our professor's computer as he
gets sh!tloads of spam, that even the central mailserver attatched
spamfilters can't really deal with in an efficent way. So far, so
good. Maybe a raise will come soon. 8-)

Thx all for suggesting mailproxies!
