We at Genworks have put together an email classifier, called “Squeakymail,” based on Paul Grahams “Plan for Spam” (http://www.paulgraham.com/spam.html).
You can configure it to pull mail from an existing POP3 server. It then classifies it, builds up statistical token tables in memory and saved periodically on the filesystem, and puts the good messages in /var/mail/ on the machine on which it is running. If you then want to run your own POP server on your machine, you will essentially have a spam-filtering POP proxy.
We are also starting a commercial service based on Squeakymail. It is hosted at:
At some point in the future we plan to start charging $3.33 monthly for the service. Currently, you can use and help us test the service for free.
