OK, I now have SpamAssassin up and running. If you have an account on the Unix server where your mail is delivered (and especially if you’ve used procmail before), getting SpamAssassin to work is ridiculously simple. I also tested it with a copy of a spam message that I had, and its scoring system worked perfectly. So, now I’m eager to get some real spam messages so I can see how well it works. I’m utterly giddy about the possibility of getting rid of most, if not all, of the spam that I receive on a daily basis.
