RE: Filtering SPAM with Linux

You want to use SpamAssassin. Here are some links:

While I agree with this, you can up the ante by combining SpamAssassin
with other peices of software like ClamAV (GPL anti virus software.)

The best "umbrella" I've found is MailScanner.  It sits between two mail
queues and scans your mail for spam and viruses using SpamAssassin and your
choice of AV software (it supports a lot.)  MailScanner has an active
and friendly user community and is also GPL'd software.

See:

http://www.mailscanner.info for general MailScanner information,
http://www.clamav.org for information on clam.

As an aside:  clamav has beat all the major commercial AV vendors recently
to the web with virus identification updates.
