I use procmail and fetchmail. Fetchmail pops the mail from
my isp. Procmail delivers to local users. My .promailrc
contains my filtering instructions as shown below.
============== ~/.procmailrc =================
MAILDIR=$HOME/mail #you'd better make sure it exists
#Mailing list start
#If you subscribe to any mailing lists, you might want to filter them off first:
* ^X-Spam-Level: \*\*\*\*\*\*\*\*\*\*
* ^X-Spam-Status: Yes
