Has anyone had experience using this with AOL mail?  I have been using a 
shareware program called Garbage Man which doesn't seem that easy to "train" and 
operates on the mailbox after it is opened.   Garbage Man works OK with DJML 
because the word "[Dixielandjazz]" appears in every title.  But the program 
slowly picks through each mail to determine if it should be discarded. This means 
there is a fairly long wait before I can proceed to read my mail.  I would 
appreciate learning about other scam mail filter programs that work with AOL.

The popfile approach sounds pretty good in principle, it operates at the 
proxy level so bad stuff never reaches your mailbox.
