I have just succeeded in setting up spamassassin, using Woody 2.4.20 - I
could not get the apt-get installed version to work for me, so I went to
the spamassassin download page, d/l the tar.gz of version 2.60, and
follwed the instructions. Went very easily.

Then, to co-ordinate with KMail, follow the link to page:


and you should be up and running. I assume you have procmail installed.
