OK, I'm convinced this is a godd idea, and I;ve looked at the
/etc/defaults/spamassain file, and I think I now what options I want there.
That leaves me with 2 questiosn.
1. What do I need to have im my .procmailrc file to use spamc, instead of
callng spamassain directly?
2. Once I chane /etc/defaults/spamassain, short of rebooting the machine,
how can I get spamc to sstart as a daaemon?
