Have any of you guys seen any really good guides to installing and configuring SpamAssassin? I'm thinking about installing it on my Linux box.

SpamAssassin was one of the few perl scripts that worked out of the box using the ReadMe.

Did you need to add any perl modules, or did you already have everything you needed?

I've been wanting to add mail proxies to my laptop for just such a purpose...I've got cygwin ready to go...
But then...the Bayesian filter technique recently mentioned on Slashdot, which originally existed solely as as a procmail recipe, now exists as a Win32 pop3 proxy.
Now I'd still like an SMTP proxy, that would detect which of two servers will allow me to submit mail, and automatically route it to the appropriate server.
That sounds an awful lot like a spammer trick, and it is, but I have a really good reason for it. I hook my laptop up to the network at work, and my ISP won't relay my email from my job, which is a good thing. And likewise, my work network won't accept email from my ISP's network. So my solution is to run an SMTP proxy on my notebook, tell all my mail clients to submit to 127.0.0.1, and let the proxy take care of everything.

Bruce, thanks for the link to the Bayesian filter! I've been meaning to setup the qmail version on my webhost, but never got around to it.

Hey, I just found instructions on installing spamassassin on win32. He also has a link on using it with GroupWise if you are into that kinda thing. Maybe I'm the only one.
