i've had good luck with spamassassin, which can optionally use razor.
basically spamassassin will parse the message for unsubsribe's, all
caps, razor entries, rbl entries...etc, but it also checks for known
mailing list software and all kinds of other things. and gives points
depending on what it finds, if its above X (5 by default) it says its
spam. a debian package in unstable, not sure of stable.
