Seeking Bayesian filtering for Mac OS 9

Permalinks to this entry: individual page or in monthly context. For more material from my journal, visit my home page or the archive.

Does anyone know of a program that implements Bayesian spam filtering for Mac OS 9 and Microsoft Entourage? Windows and Mac OS X seem to have a range of options, such as SpamBully and SpamSieve, but the only decent spam-killer application I've found so far for OS 9 is Spamfire, which works well, but has the disadvantages of having to run as a separate application and not being "trainable" the way Bayesian filters are.

My PowerBook will never run OS X, so if you know of something that runs on the older OS, please pass it along.

UPDATE: On a related note, spam is now 25 years old, although actually calling it spam is not.
