+fetchyahoo for Debian
+---------------------
+
+One possible use for this package would be as spam training for a tool
+like bogofilter. Something like:
+
+$ fetchyahoo --folder=Bulk --pipe --spoolfile='/usr/bin/bogofilter -s'
+
+will pipe all of your accumulated "bulk messages" through bogofilter.
+Put it on a cron job (or use --repeatinterval) to do this regularly.
+
+A similar use would be to use your Yahoo account as a spamtrap for a
+spamassassin/razor combination.
