We have done some pretty good improvements to SPAM filter in Evolution

Currently we are having SpamAssassin as the default junk filter and I
remember lots of people having issues with SA (interms of speed,
resources it occupies, memory, processes etc). IIRC some distros already
use bogofilter as the default junk filter.

I'm proposing to make Bogofilter as the default junk filter for
Evolution. Any thoughts to it?

I say go for it. My impression is that SA is more suitable for
server-side filtering, and given that many providers are already using
it, it makes sense to have a different filter on the client side,
especially as it's relatively lightweight and seems less buggy.
