I use mutt, procmail, and bogofilter (a Bayesian filter by ESR).
I have two inboxes, one for incoming good mail, one for incoming spam.
Bogofilter decides which is which on arrival. If I get a spam in my good
inbox, I hit ESC-S (Spam!) to remove it and update bogofilter. If I get
a good mail in my spam inbox, I hit ESC-N (Not spam!) to move it to the
good inbox and update bogofilter. I briefly check the spam inbox once a
week for false positives.
Here are the three lines of my .procmailrc:
* ? bogofilter -u -2
Here are the 2 lines of my .muttrc:
macro index <esc>N ":unset wait_key\n|bogofilter -Sn\ns!\n:set wait_key\n" "De-spam a good email in Bogofilter"
macro index <esc>S ":unset wait_key\n|bogofilter -Ns\ns~/mail/oldspam\n:set wait_key" "En-spam a spam in Bogofilter"
