At the moment there is no Evolution support at all for Spamassassin.
Which is a pity, because with each new version (presently 2.5x) it's
getting to be an indispensible utility.

I have an Evolution filter set up as follows:


Pipe Message to Shell Command "/usr/bin/spamassassin -e" "does not
return" "0"


Move to Folder "SpamFolder"
Stop Processing

This seems to do the job very well.  Note that it does NOT rewrite the
message headers the way procmail does, so looking for the X-Spam-Flag
after calling spamassassin will not work.

The only problem is I can't figure out how to have it delete the
messages from my POP3 account automatically.  I have the account set to
"Leave messages on server" so my family can get to the mail from
Windows, but I can't get Evolution to delete the spam from the server
(using the Delete action) after it has been detected by spamassassin.
