1. one reason is that I'm concerned about configuration file
synchronization .. - i know i can make it on system level but still ;-) - so
if it is another solution for making that i want to try it before i make it

2. yes im using only blacklist's for detecting spam - its working good right
now, so i dont have reason to change it for now ... but if after solving the
problem with secondary mailserver number of spam will be not lowered i
install spamassasin too - im using it right now only on my workstation and it
is working well too ;-)
