In what other area would you need spam detection?  The only way that I'm 
aware of that spam gets onto my system is through e-mail.  So the e-mail 
client *is* the appropriate place to put the spam detecting task, IMHO.

It always amazes me when people assert that "something should be a 
separate task" in Linux and not built in to an appropriate program.  
Then a little later, there'll be a debate about text editors and people 
will be praising Emacs...  which is an operating system all to itself 
which uses *nix as a boot loader...
