'popsneaker' remotely filters POP3 email accounts. It is most useful for computers with a dial-in connection to the internet. You can define rules to select emails, which you don't want to download to your local box. This is a simple and effective way to get rid of spam, advertisings and other kinds of unwanted mail. The filter rules are very flexible and powerful, but still easy to handle. The main ruletypes use regular expressions to deny, to accept or make an assumption about the mail.
