You can also use the Spamassassin Rule Actions and delete stuff that scores 
somewhat higher then your base high spam score. I do that with stuff that 
scores over 25, and eliminate a good portion of stuff that is very unlikely to 
be a FP.

SpamAssassin Rule Actions = SpamScore>25=>not-store

MailScanner is like deodorant...
You hope everybody uses it, and
you notice quickly if they don't!!!!
