I currently have an email account that receives TONS of spam because currently I have no filter setup. Is there any way of going through that spam that I am receiving and setup a filter off those hundreds of spam emails instead of just trashing them?

Do you talk about a server solution (as your title implies) or your client software? –  initall Mar 13 '11 at 19:01
    
Well yes a server solution but I was wondering if I could use those emails to my advantage of grabbing keywords and all. –  Ratty Mar 13 '11 at 19:05

Yes of course. Configure amavisd-new with SpamAssassin and use sa-learn (here the example scripts) to populate your spam database. Afterwards, continue to re-run this script maybe daily or so to keep current. This is a sample tutorial to getting started.

Thank you weeheavy I will have to take a look at that soon! Just a quick question, what are your thoughts about ASSP in comparison to the solution you listed above? –  Ratty Mar 15 '11 at 18:13
    
Sorry for the late reply; I have no experience with ASSP but the features described on their website look good at least. –  weeheavy Mar 21 '11 at 8:12
