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.)

I use it, I love it. Not that difficult to install really: Follow the
instructions and, assuming you are using procmail for mailbox delivery,
use the following procmail recipe:

    # SpamAssassin 
    | spamc
    * ^X-Spam-Status: Yes

I've created a SPAM mailbox in Evolution, changed it to maildir type.
That should do the trick.
