I'll just add another plug for Mozilla 1.3 which runs on XP and Linux. 
You'll need to 'train' it - ie tell it what you consider spam and, 
equally, what you DON'T consider spam - and within a week it'll be 
catching 99% of the junk.

The only downside I can see is that it doens't run server side, ie you 
actually have to download the email body before the filter can work on it.
