I'll second David's opinion here.... I'm running MailScanner at home (!) on
Linux. Take a look at  and and you'll see that spamassassin is by far the
most effective trap.


PS, David if you read this, I notice on your site there is a breakdown of
spam source by country - is that a new version you are working on?

If you look at my stats ( you will see
that by far the most efficient spam detector is spamassassin followed by
some of the RBLs. I'm not sure if this is true of other sites but in my
opinion it is well worth the effort to use spamassassin
