I was going to have a look at this because I use IMAP, but haven't got 
round to it, and quite probably never will.

With IMAP, you don't really need a proxy. You can use a standalone 
program to filter the mail into the correct folders, and the messages 
will appear in the right place in any IMAP client. Because the folders 
are on the server, you can even do automatic training independent of any 

If anyone fancies doing this, IMAPSpamBeGone 
(http://www.rogerbinns.com/isbg) might be a good jumping off point. It's 
an IMAP front-end for SpamAssassin, written in Python, so should be 
relatively easy to adapt for SpamBayes.
