I would be really interested in your configuration of SpamAssassin and mailscanner.

are you running SpamAssassin with sendmail, and by being tiggered by procmail during local delivery?
are you using the spamd/spamc stuff ?

Because if you are, I am looking for a different solution. I use
mailscanner on a sendmail relay , before my real mail server (like I guess
most others do).

I've been using spam-assassin,, along with
mailscanner. Spam-assassin catches about 95% of the spam sent to the
I work for, up significantly from what mailscanner can catch, but it
do virus scanning so I have to use both products on my mail gateway. I
love to see these to products combined into one. I may have a chance to
start some work in that direction in the comming days, but if someone else
would like to look at this, that would be great.
