I figure I might as well mention that there are some incredible custom rule
sets for Spamassassin. I'm not sure if everyone who uses SA is on the SATALK
list so I'll post info on the sets:

You REALLY want Weeds, Popcorn, and Backhair sets from:
http://www.emtinc.net/spamhammers.htm 

And *toot* my own horn, you want bigevil.cf from the link in my sig.
(usually updated weekly, but it has been daily for fun.)There is another
ruleset coming out soon that also rocks! THe link in my sig will soon be
moved to a newer site with a searchable DB for custom rules. SA is growing
up fast ;-)

*snip*

      The solution we ended on (Postfix->SpamAssassin->Amavisd) is
seamless and very robust. Postfix is a great Mail interface and very
secure and stable. Amavis-new is a unbeatable MTA for 
handling multiple
AV and Spam scanning programs and SA has to be the best Spam 
Filter I've
seen yet. The down side is multiple config files and systems to watch
out for and upgrading is a little bit of a pain.

      But your (others) mileage may very, its looks like a very
promising project.

Dear Shawn,
Many thanks for your fast reply.
Unfortunatly we are not using razor,dcc or amavis.
Btw did you try "BlackHole" 
They are claiming that it is lightweighted program yet effeicent.
Best Regards,
Kareem Mahgoub
