Well the easiest way is do not do it.  Let im-switch take care of these
for you.

Use im-switch, uim-anthy, and uim.  There are very detaild explanation.

If README.Debian of these files differ, listen to uim one instead of
im-switch.  It needs updates.

NO.  That is life.  If you hate SPAM and do not want to do your own spam
filter like me.  Use free ISP like gmail.com.  They give you POP3 free
account.  (I can send you an account.)
