Either of these tools are great for stopping SPAM – but what about using them with your favorite email client?

Some clients, however, have built-in tools to save you a little work. KMail belongs to the latter category. So long as you have either/or Bogofilter or Spamassassin installed, you are one step closer to having solid SPAM filtering."
