junkfilter is a procmail-based spam filtering system that is both configurable and customizable. Procmail is a popular and powerful mail-processing program available for nearly all Unix systems. This means that junkfilter doesn't work on Windows, AOL, Hotmail, Yahoo! Mail, Juno, WebTV, or any other type of system--just Unix (BSD, Linux, Solaris, etc.).

junkfilter filters a wide range of spam using many different types of filters. It is configurable on a systemwide or per-user basis. Is unsolicited commercial email (UCE) filling up your mailbox? Can't stand the thought of webmail-style throwaway email addresses? Take control of your inbox: you can filter 90 % of that spam with junkfilter.

We assume you've already got procmail installed and running properly, as this is explicitly a "junk email filter system for procmail". Consult the procmail documentation or the FAQ,
http://www.zer0.org/procmail/ if you need help installing procmail.

Set the $PMDIR variable. It is recommended that you make a directory ".procmail" in your home directory and a symlink from $HOME/.procmailrc to $HOME/.procmail/procmailrc:
mkdir -m 755 $HOME/.procmail
mv -i $HOME/.procmailrc $HOME/.procmail/procmailrc
ln -s $HOME/.procmail/procmailrc $HOME/.procmailrc
If you do this, you can set PMDIR=$HOME/.procmail

Place the junkfilter files wherever you want them. $PMDIR/junkfilter is a likely choice. Set $JFDIR in your procmailrc (for junkfilter to run) and in your shell configuration files (for the Makefile) to the directory in which you placed junkfilter.
