Using ubuntu 11.04 seems to me that none is going to filter anything :-(

Or better nowadays:

Actually I would dispute that. I know the latter URL is now the official
FAQ, and it certainly looks nice, but I feel the info in the original
FAQ is currently a bit more complete, at least for this specific
question. That's why I referenced it.

I see... Which bits are missing?

For one thing, the new FAQ says nothing about how to train the junk
filters. The old FAQ at least mentioned this as something you need to

If you feel like patching, these files are named mail-spam*.page in

Also, the new FAQ points the user
to specific SourceForge pages to install Bogofilter or SpamAssassin. Not
a good idea IMHO, as most distros already offer them via their usual
installation mechanisms.

That's the default fallback on the web version. 
On your harddisk (Help > Contents) this will start your package
management application instead (on Fedora 16: gnome-packagekit).

Both the builtin Help and the FAQ refer directly to the Sourceforge
pages. The FAQ does mention using the distro packages, but then labels
the Sourceforge links as "Install <filter> now". I think this is
unclear. I'll see if I can fix it.
