Re: Spam Assassin
I'm using Spamassassin, interfaced with exim to filter before delivery to
local users. It works really well -- it catches 40-50% of incoming mail
(for about 7 users total) as spam, with a false-positive rate of way less
than 1%. I've seen a slight increase lately in spams that slip through,
but typically my inbox gets three or four a day, which still isn't too bad.
I dump all the suspected spam into a separate mailbox, which I check every
couple of days by scanning the combination of subject line and sender.
When I do that check, I may find one or two messages out of several hundred
that I forward on as likely "real" email.

Wanted to get the general impression of how well Spam Assassin
works in eliminating Spam and if there are any other packages
we should be looking into.
