Hi Pierre-Jean,

> 1) How do you deal with spams on the server side?

Hmm, that doesn't seem much related to MH, to tell the truth.  The ways
to configure server part depend on the software you are using on the 

However, being a client program suite, mailutils MH provides a way to
handle spam on the local machine as well.  In particular, you can
create a Sieve script and instruct inc to use it by the following
line in your mh_profile:

  inc: -script /path/to/your/sieve/file

I don't quite get the idea.  Could you elaborate on it please?

If you are using Emacs interface, then I'd suggest using Mailcrypt
(https://www.emacswiki.org/emacs/MailCrypt).  To enable it, add the
following to your .emacs file:

  (require 'mailcrypt)
  (mc-setversion "gpg")
  (add-hook 'mh-folder-mode-hook 'mc-install-read-mode)
  (add-hook 'mh-letter-mode-hook 'mc-install-write-mode)
  (setq mc-gpg-user-id "YOURID")
  (setq mc-passwd-timeout 14400)

See the description of the MH-Folder emacs mode for keyboard shortcuts.

Passwords are normally stored in ~/.mu-tickets file (its format is
described in http://mailutils.org/wiki/Mailutils_wicket).  Interfaces
to third-party password storing facilities can be implemented, if the
facility in question provides a documented API.
