To add...
I have DCC, Razer, and pyzor

Here are what rules that I have:
In /usr/share/spamassassin (I think I am correct in saying that these
are the default rules)
[root at WoodenMS spamassassin]# ls        languages       triplets.txt            user_prefs.template

In /etc/mail/spamassassin
[root at WoodenMS spamassassin]# ls                              init.pre                RulesDuJour              spamassassin-default.rc                  spamassassin-spamc.rc 

Notice the RulesDuJour directory above, in that directory there is:

[root at WoodenMS RulesDuJour]# ls                                                                                                                      rules_du_jour                        sa-blacklist.current

Seems like a ton of rules.  

I do not know really what percentage of spam gets through, but I see it
doing really good.

I actively seen and was told by the user that this helped a great
We have Microsoft Exchange
I had her put her spam that she got into a certain folder so that I
could 	feed bayes with it
I feed bayes with it and her spam dramatically dropped in a few months.
