A quick post with two questions:
- What spam-filtering software do you recommend?
- Is there a PAM module for testing with HaveIBeenPwnd?
- If not would you sponsor me to write it? ;)
So I've been using crm114 to perform spam-filtering on my incoming mail, via
procmail, for the past few years.
Today I discovered it had archived about 12Gb of my email history, because I'd never pruned it. (Beneath
So I wonder if there are better/simpler/different Bayesian-filters out there at that I should be switching to? Recommendations welcome - but don't say "SpamAssassin", thanks!

So it seems like there is value in a PAM module to do a lookup at authentication-time, via
