Get your mail host to do that, or switch to someone who will.

dman's example at
http://dman13.dyndns.org/~dman/config_docs/exim-spamassassin/ works
well, one minor adjustment I would make (and I hope dman sees this)
would be to change is when you're setting up the spamcheck transport,
instead of...

transport_filter = /usr/bin/spamc

...I would make that line...

transport_filter = /usr/bin/spamc -u $local_part

...which allows each user to use thier own spamassassin configuration
in ~/.spamassassin
