Does anyone have an relatively effective set of filter rules to reduce
spam with Evolution? 

The fad with the kids is to use SpamAssassin, it's supposed to be very
effective. You can't really hook it up into Evolution unless you're
using 1.1 and feeling a bit adventurous, but if that's not a problem,
I'd recommend it (though not having used it myself.)

To extend that answer a bit:

I run fetchmail to get my email from various and sundry places to my
local box; I have a ~/.procmailrc to engage SpamAssassin in checking
each mail as fetchmail gets it. I have those marked as spam into a Spam
mbox; I comb it thru once every day or so for titles or senders which
may have been false positives.

It's a happy thing.
