Trevor, kmail is a mail client. You will want to run bogofilter from your
mail delivery agent, eg. procmail. This should be done on your pop3 mail
server when it receives incoming mail. Unless there is some hook in your
client software to run an external filter, or unless you want to hack kmail
to do so, you cannot run bogofilter directly from your client. If you want
filtering on your local machine, you can run sendmail/procmail (or
equivalent MTA/MDA) locally, or you can simply write a bash script that
iterates through your maildir and applies bogofilter to each message and run
that script before you check your mail, but that seems kind of sloppy.
