One of the best is Popfile at Sourceforge. It is free and 
crossplatform compatible so it will work with most OSes 
and any mail program.

A some what simpler solution might be to use either the 
Mozilla Suite or just Mozilla Thunderbird. Both have built 
in spam filters though not as quite as good as PopFile.
