recent posts regarding antispam are not very helpful. they recommend
bogofilter, though. it seems to be the standard ubuntu antispam tool and
it's fast. but i don't know, how to integrate it into evolution.

setting up a program filter with "bogofilter -p" (passthrough) does not
give me any "X-Bogosity"-headers in my mails. this is bad.
