Seconded.  I get about two spam messages a week that get through to the 
inbox, and the rest picked off by SpamAssassin with a good spamfolder to 
assist it with Bayesian filtering (I don't delete spam, I move it all to the 
spam folder if I see it in my inbox).  Actually, you know what I'd like?  
Absolutely no protection for my address at all.  I don't want it hidden or 
obfuscated and I especially don't want hidden restrictions about who I can 
and can't send e-mail to/receive e-mail from dictated solely by the mail 
server (i.e. can't receive mail from or send to my uncle using AOL... not 
using @FreeBSD.org as my address...)
