I own a small domain for use at home and my ISP provides me with a <anything>@<yoursubdomain>.isp type account. I'm swamped with randomly generated addresses that don't correspond with anything I've ever given out and I'd like (ideally) deleted at source rather than downloaded to my PC. I've recently installed GFI ME at work which has a "directory harvesting" module which marks as spam everything that is addressed to a non-existent recipient within the domain. For SpamPal, a module in which you could list all your alternate valid email addresses, and that would block anything not sent to one of those addresses, would be a great first level of filtering.
Ideally I'd like SpamPal to be able to delete some messages directly where it has a very high confidence that it has detected Spam. An alternative approach would be to introduce Spam Confidence Levels so that we could use mail client rules to sort some spam out for routine manual checking while letting more obvious spam be moved to a generally ignored spam sink.
