I haven't been following this thread, so aplogies now if I tread on sore toes.

I, too, didn't have much time to spare for configuration, though I did look at 
it briefly.  I did find, though, that one simple change to kmail made a huge 
difference.  In the filter configuration for classifying as spam, I changed 
it to the following:
sa-learn -L --spam --sync

The difference was immediately obvious.  I understand that this is not the 
default setting because it is slower than the default, but it hasn't caused 
me any problems.  Of course, manually applying the filter to missed spam 
improves performance also.
