'spamprobe' is also really good. A standalone bayesian filter. See:


IMHO, Bayesian filtering is far more effective at catching spam than static rules (SA uses both). Also, I run 'rbl-milter' to add X-RBL-Milter headers based on DNSBls and I have spamprobe configured to consider these headers. Which is rather better than configuring your MTA to reject DNSBl'd mail, cause you don't have to worry about effectiveness of a DNSBl, particularly overbearing ones - instead spamprobe will 'learn' how effective different DNSBl's are for you.
