Alternative "elegant" solution?
Authored by: TicToc on Oct 01, '05 04:29:54PM
You could try using pop3proxy, available from Darwinports (not sure if it's also available via FInk).

I chain together Entourage, POPFile pop3proxy and clamd to give me complete spam & virus checking email combination. Entourage requests its email from POPFile, which passes on the request to pop3proxy. pop3proxy collects the email from my ISP, and passes it to clamd for checking before passing it back to POPFile for classification. I then have a couple of simple rules in Entourage to file messages appropriately.

Although I don't use Apple Mail, I see no reason why this solution shouldn't work for you, as pop3proxy appears to your mail app (or spam filter, in my case) as a pop3 server.

Hope this is useful to somebody. If there's any need, I could write it up as a separate hint - I've been leeching here for long enough!
