Currently we are having SpamAssassin as the default junk filter and I remember lot of people having issues with SA (in-terms of speed, resources it occupies, memory, processes etc).
I'm proposing to make Bogofilter as the default junk filter for Evolution. Any thoughts to it?
Yes, yes, yes, please! :)
I'm extremely happy with how Bogofilter works in Evolution. It's fast, doesn't seem to eat memory, and It Works(tm).
The only problem I had is that when first setting it up, it seemed to need to be trained both for spam *and* ham (otherwise no ham showed up on my inbox). I don't know if it would be possible for Evo to detect that Bogofilter is not configured yet, and feed it your first batch of ham just the first time.
