|Here's where some of Poco's features come in handy for me.
I use the builtin junk mail filtering (I do regularly update the list of words in the body that are used in
determining the junk mail level). I've also added a number of filters that detect and seed the junk mail
score based on other conditions not currently used by Poco's junk mail filters. Using this I've been running
at 98.5% detection (1.5% false negatives) with only 1 false positive on almost 3000 spam messages over the past
One facility that I find handy here is to turn off the preview pane for the junk mail box. I simply sort the
messages by sender (and sometimes a second time by subject), scan them to ensure there are no false positives
and then use the Empty Junk Mail feature to discard them. Another thing I've done is to turn off notification
for messages in the junk mail folder. I also run a timed event that checks to see if there are any messages in
the junk mail folder and alert myself to check them when there are any. I only run this once every few hours so
I'm not constantly interrupted by junk mail.
