You'd have to use Spamassassin in combination with procmail (would then
be independant of any smtp server - but it would have to be in
co-operation with your sysadmin - info at, or in
combination with a mail (smtp) server such as Exim, in which case you'd
have to be a mailadmin and most *definitely* a techie :-(

In the new version of evolution (1.2) i believe you can run "external
programs" from filters, so you would need to: 

  * Setup a filter that ran all mail via an external 
    program (namely spamassasin)

  * Filter based on the results (i filter on the subject 
    containing *** SPAM ***) but filtering on the 'X-Spam-Flag: YES'
    is probably a better idea... 


The good news is, that Spamassassin (version 2.50 and higher) is
definitely worth becoming a techie for, so good is it :-)
