FWIW, I echo Trevor's sentiments. SpamSieve + Mail.app are by far the  
best combo I've found, especially layered on top of a GMail account.  
GMail's indexing is cool, but I prefer to search in my mail client  
since it will reach across all of my various email addresses.

In case anyone doesn't already know, GMail supplies POP3 access and  
can even be used for your outgoing mail if you have funky ISP/SMTP  
issues...
