    You could try the SpamAssasin and Evolution method http://krath.dk/linux/evolution_spamfilter/

    Have you tried the latest thunderbird? I've heard good things about its spam filter. Maybe you didn't enable it?

    Otherwise you could get a yahoo email. I get no spam with my account and I've had it for several years. Only disadvantage is it's not POP3

    Yes, man, i tried Thunderbird and worked with it for a last year or even more. It does a good job filtering spam but it provides just basic functionality in compare to KMail (for example, you can't minimize it to tray). Yahoo mail is good maybe, i don't know, but i have a pop3 account my ISP provides and there is too many things i recieve to this account, so migrating will be a pain... Anyway, thanks for reply.
