IMAPAssassin

Freshness Warning
This blog post is over 21 years old. It's possible that the information you read below isn't current and the links no longer work.

IMAPAssassin is a simple Perl script that lets you filter your mail with SpamAssassin, even if the server doesn’t have SpamAssassin installed. You install SpamAssassin on another computer (like your desktop) and then run the IMAPAssassin script. IMAPAssassin will watch your mailbox over IMAP and run any message that arrive there through your local SpamAssassin installation.

Nice script. I edited a few things to make it work with a GUI I wrote for Mac OS X. The edited script can still be used as a drop-in replacement for the original, if you like the way it works. Posted at the website I mentioned. Since there was no license attached to it, I assumed the same license as SpamAssassin so I used Apache License version 2.0. GUI will be posted shortly and linked to the website.

According to the project page on SourceForge, it appears the license is GPL.
