No! What did I just say in the earlier followup? Here is is again:
"Like I said, I already filter (and yes, it does its own filtering) and
I ignore the Procmail and it does what it does, *without any
intervention*, as the email arrives, and bounces the spams back to their
source. And I go on about my business and very seldom see any spam in
my inbox. Mail Washer _does_not_ do that, and I find that unacceptable.
But I also find that my filters, on occasion, have a false positive,
and so I'm looking for something better, _not_ something that I'm
I add above, "as the email arrives, at the server,"
Also, take a look at this:

PUNCTUATION - Apostrophe
Incorrect uses: (i) the apostrophe must not be used with a plural
where there is no possessive sense, as in ~tea's are served here~;
(ii) there is no such word as ~her's, our's, their's, your's~.
Confusions: it's = it is or it has (not 'belonging to it'); correct
uses are ~it's here~ (= it is here); ~it's gone~ (= it has gone);
but ~the dog wagged its tail~ (no apostrophe).
