My personal experience with spamassassin over three weeks and 5300 mails
is 98% true positive, 1.7% false positive, 0.1% false negative, and
99.2% true negative scoring.  Pretty fnordammned impressive.  We're
looking at rolling it out as a value-add for clients at work (not to
mention sanity in the office).

I got revved to 3.1.36 today on a 2.2 kernel.  The install/config are
based on 2.4, and break networking rather badly, based on both kernel
modules and card/driver associations.  For the gory details, see
