exim4 with spamassassin ... confused

After digging around in several wiki pages and other google hits on
'debian exim4 spamassassin'

I'm thoroughly confused by now.

One of the sources:

Under the `Spam scanning' header it tells me exim has a default
configuration for spamassassin (-ed HP included with

I have the `heavy' version installed and working so far as sending

So, if exim4 has a default config for SA does that mean I need not
edit anything?.... well apparently not....

The cited page goes on after saying the config is default, to tell me what
edits to make.

... is all that necessary... given the config is default?

Here is another example of the googled material:


Down at the bottom of page is has an example called: 

`All in one'

Is that intended to replace my current /etc/exim4/exim4.conf.template?

It does not really say.

Any pointers to a basic SA/exim4 setup that leaves less to guess at
would be really appreciated.

I am not an exim4 or SA adept and don't have a keen desire to become
so just to get a working setup that at least puts something into
incoming messages showing a spam analysis.

Any known working examples would be greatly useful.
