Yes, the one I supply. Most people only actually need to touch the "Virus
Scanners" setting to get up and running with sensible defaults for
everything else. If you want to use SpamAssassin as well, set "Use
SpamAssassin = yes". Leave the rest of it alone to start with and then just
tweak as necessary.

If you want to strip HTML out of spam (good for killing porn spam) then set
Spam Actions = deliver striphtml
High Scoring Spam Actions = deliver striphtml

Please feel free to start a section in the FAQ and add some "if you want to
do this, then set these" items to it. The FAQ could really do with some
more content, but that's up to you folks...
