No. because the mail isn't at your computer - it's in the web. Software on your computer can only filter things happening on your computer.

it uses IMAP or POP to communicate with the remote mail server get the mail  - handling spam as it goes.

So, it won't work for EVERY web mail service - only those who support IMAP or POP access.

If T-Online support IMAP or POP, that's a different way of getting at the mail than webmail (same mail though).

You can test your spam filter using the GTUBE test case - GTUBE - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
