Procmail is no spam detection tool. SpamAssassin (shipped with Core) is
one which is for spam rating of mail. It can be integrated to the mail
server system by using Procmail. Procmail can not reject mail but only
can lead to bounces which is bad as you would hit to many faked and
innocent senders. DSPAM is another product. The SpamAssassin website has
a Wiki and there are ways described on how to setup SpamAssassin with
the mail server.
Be aware that running a mail server for business you should know what
you are doing. Automatic rejection of mail which is automatically
classified as spam isn't advised. There are false positives.
