I use an IMAP server on my dedicated host, so I kind of get the best of both
worlds on that score - server-side filtering (much more comforting on the
antivirus side) with complete personal control over the config. The downside
is that if structures fill up etc, I have to page myself at 4am :) but that's
I never send anything to /dev/null, just to junk folders that I periodically
clean out. I prefer that because if someone says "I emailed that doc to you
last Monday" and I didn't see it, I always have a dumpster I can dive for it
as a last resort.
