you can use postfix to act as an MTA and filter the mail comming in, while you are at it you might as well scan it for viruses and spam.

google postfix spamassassin DC razor and you should come up with a bunch of different config methods.


what exactly do you want to achieve with proxying pop3 and imap?
For IMAP & POP3 I am using the following. I'm happy with it.

There's no all in one proxy, forget.
