I think popsneaker should work with apop - below isa snip from the manual

| This is the 0.6 release of popsneaker.  It contains some redesigns in

On the other hand I believe that many of the  current wave of spam
messages are very large - over 100K - so it should be possible simply ti
filter them with either procmail or fetchmail on that basis - I set up
popsneaker here before discovering this ;-)

Good luck
