I'm subscribed to 3 BSD mailing lists and uncountable many Linux mailing
lists. I receive from a little bit under hundred to several hundred
mails from the lists each day and I guess maximal 10 spam mails each day
and usually the spam is redirected to my junk folder, while very, very
seldom wanted mail is redirected to the junk folder.

IMO everything is good as is.
