Barbarossa:

Mail.app in Mac OS-X will do all that, too; it has all of
those manual settings. I've just be using it in the training
mode: I see Junk, I mark it Junk. After a while you set it to run
automatically.

Barbarossa:

Same here, although I'm not sure either OE 6 or Mail actually
deletes the message from the server. I know the antique Netscape
3.04 had that option, but only after you downloaded.
