Client side?  I get my mail from an NT server, use fetchmail for retrieve
it to a Debian box and use procmail on the client side to filter it.

Note: I used to get mail directly to my Debian box, but now I'm forced to
get it from an NT server because Debian 1.3's sendmail allowed mail
relaying by default and I was not aware of the potential for abuse; too bad
I wasn't using RedHat!  As far as I know, Debian's default sendmail
configuration still allows this big hole, so beware if you use it.
