The CVS version of SpamAssassin has a Bayesian type component to it.
The latest CVS packages are available (and built daily by 10:00 UTC):

deb http://people.debian.org/~duncf/debian/ unstable main

Or you can wait till SpamAssassin 2.50 is released. Your call. IMHO,
Spamassassin is better than purely bayes based filters since it only
uses bayes as one component of the score, and uses many other rules to
determine the overall level of spamminess.
