I have slightly different issues here. I installed spamassassin, and it's 
doing it's filtering thing. It wants to scan *all* incoming mail, though. 
When there's 100 or so messages waiting for each of three or four mailing 
lists, spamassassin will choke. And forget about using remote checks.

I've switched to kmail because I can set where the filters will kick in. 
Mailing list mail will go to it's assigned folder, and *then* the spam filter 
checks what's left. It's much easier to check 10-15 messages instead of 
300-400.
