The right place is the mail server, which should recognize that

on your computer is no good at all, because the message has been
accepted by the mail server and the spammer will get paid for it.
If the mail is rejected, as opposed to being accepted and binned,
the spammer hasn't done his job, which in my book is a Good Thing.

This is far too simplistic. Not all mail identified as spam is in fact
spam, and only the final recipient can make the call. There is no one
canonically right answer for every situation, so there is a place for
client-side spam filtering in many use cases.

Not only that, Yahoo manages the server operated by my ISP, which is
ATT, so I am stuck with them.  They appear to be less bad than Comcast.

I'm pleased to have a couple of replies to my posting, but still no
answers to the question: how to recognize junk on the existence of a
particular header without concern for its content.

Thanks - jon
