Later versions of kmail have their own version of poppy, and can 
delete unwanted stuff from the pop3 server before actually dl'ing and 
filtering the rest of it.

My main problem with that is that for some reason, kmail in earlier 
versions, has been known to suddenly blank its database of triggers 
after working great for a month or so.  I'm setting up a new list as 
we go again, something I haven't tried since updateing the kde build 
to 3.1.1a with konstruct not too long before my little 2 month 
hiatius.  Its dl and sort filter has not had that problem, and has 
sorted much of this stuff to the JunqueMail folder and marked it as 
read to boot.  It also has quite a list of other actions it might 
take, including fwding the crap to uce at ftc.gov.  Unforch, that hides 
the headers that the ftc needs to trace the crap so I haven't used it
