I actually switched from IMAP-UW (ironic because I'm a UW student) to
Cyrus-IMAP to manage my personal email. Cyrus has a built in filtering
language called Sieve which works really well for moving my list and RSS
feeds into proper IMAP folders.
seems to suggest procmail can do this too.

I actually haven't tackled this one yet. Try looking through
http://www.freebsd.org/ports/index.html with a keyword of spam.
