I'm running a service that would fit the bill.  I run fetchmail
to get email from the user's current service, run it through a
spam/virus catcher (Spamassassin and Anomy Sanitizer), and drop
the cleaned mail in a box on my server (spam and virus folders
available for users that want to verify they aren't loosing

Ok, "am running" is a bit aggressive.  Its beta and not yet open
to the public.  But soon.

Find inner peace and ten thousand around you shall be saved.
