Except that training, an essential component of spam filtering these days, is a downstream, user problem.
I think that ALL spam filtering should occur on the server, before the message queue. This just solves so many problems. However, training necessarily requires user interaction, and therefore should be supported in the MUA. True, there are web-based hacks, like in dspam, to try to work around this but just try explaining them to a clueless user!
