If you want a GUI MUA that incorporates anti-spam features, I
highly recommend Eudora 6. It also has a built-in spelling checker
(or uses the spelling check service provided by the OS), and many
other positive features. Eudora works well as either an IMAP or POP3
On the CLI side, you can use SpamAssassin with procmail, and mutt
will work well (although pine would probably also work). If you're
doing anything related to PGP, I think mutt would be a better choice,
since it was designed (by Mike Elkins, the author of the PGP/MIME
RFC) to integrate those kinds of features from Day One. Mutt has
always worked well as a POP3 client, but used to have poor support
for IMAP. I don't know if that has since changed.
