One option you might want to look into (although it would mean some
configuration) is to download your e-mail separately from your mail
client. If you set up something like fetchmail + postfix (or sendmail if
you must) + SpamAssassin + procmail, then mail will trickle in to your
machine periodically and be filtered in the background. When you open up
a mail client, it's already there and filtered.

You could also add in Dovecot to "publish" the e-mails over IMAP. That
would mean that Dovecot is responsible for storing your e-mails, not
your mail client, and means that you can switch mail clients and have
all your e-mail Just There and working.

or you can use mutt via ssh instead of installing dovecot
