Long. long ago in a galaxy faraway, I used to use Spamassassin in association
with Kmail, configured using the built-in setup wizard.

Several years ago, I switched from Kmail to Thunderbird for email collection,
but I just noticed that spamd still starts up
automatically on this machine. I've also started getting more spam here
recently (must be getting through my ISPs filters) and that
started me wondering if it was possible to route my incoming mail through
spamassassin before it gets to Thunderbird. I collect my
mail from an IMAP account 'out there'.

Do I have to setup my own local IMAP server, or can Thunderbird be configured
somehow?

See my sig for system information.

Thanks,

It might be easier to turn on and train the junk mail filters
in Thunderbird. They can get pretty smart after period of training.

Because you rely on an imap server, you would have to either
fetch all the mail and replicate it with your own resource (mbox or something
more complex) and possibly forgo the benefit of imap.

It might be easier to use something like ISBG
http://www.verot.net/kmail_spam.htm?lang=en-GB
to prowl your IMAP account and mark (and move) spam on the remote Imap,
independent
of the delivery into Thunderbird.
This is also recommended on the Spamassassin site:
