 How To Set Up IMAP On The Cheap

Linux World tells us how to set up an e-mail server with IMAP support that blocks spam.

"Next, we apply some very simple spam traps. For example, any message that lacks a "To" field is almost certainly bulk mail, which we can confidently say is spam.

If you're paranoid about such things, you can move this step closer to the bottom of the order of steps."
