Other what the other people said.  One thing about decoupling the spam
filter and email client is that you then can change your spam filter
without changing your client.  Say, you're not happy with the
performance of bogofilter.  Just install spamassassin instead.  And it
doesn't matter which email client you are using, everything will work as
it always has.
