MS not deleting spam

I never could get MailScanner-4.25-14 working.  I spent days wading
through conflicting docs, disorganized FAQ's and searches in archives
that just don't seen to find or work right.  Most of the problems 'I
think' were install issues.  I'm not too good at the technical issues
but I sure could straighten out some of the docs with crummy info, so
that may be were I could plug in.

In any event, I decided to try the openprotect package and it went right
in in minutes and started as advertised.  I made more progress in five
minutes then the last five days.

So now I'm at the debug stage and hardly know were to begin.  It looks
like about half of the spams (real rough est.) are getting blocked
successfully.  About half are getting through with the tag in the
subject line with:

Subject:  {Spam?} Be your own boss tapir

How do I get the rest of these mails to not go to the clients?  They are
apparently successfully being recognized as spam.

Are there any other good known things to be implemented to get a good
starting base for spam filtering?

Are all the default RBL entries built in, needed, and are there any
others that should be added?

Finally, is there an 'after install' docs or mail archive that addresses
the potential after install buffing issues?

Thanks any help would be greatly appreciated.  I hope I didn't ask too
many questions at once.....
