Most of my users are in a position where they don't need to worry about
bandwidth to the mail server (it's the case with most offices, I'd imagine).
Making spam have the *****SPAM***** subject, and user education on how to
filter based on that, works wonders for the not having to worry about things
(in that mail is all still delivered to them, some with informative spam
notification, and what they do after that is up to them.).

This is where the pretty CGI interface to user_prefs comes in (note: It hasn't
been written yet, but it's getting there :)). Allowing non-local users to
change their spam threshold and [white|black]list people themselves is the
one thing I've been lacking.

Arguably, this is the correct way to go about it, since arguably, it should be
only the final destination of the mail that does spam filtering?
