1. Set up postfix (or whatever MTA you are using) to reject as much as
possible at SMTP time.
If done right postfix can reject 90+% (depending on how much /what type
of spam your domains get) with pretty much zero FPs...
Lots of examples down in the UCE/Virus section here:
2. Add amavisd-new+spamassassin to the mix, and tag+deliver anything it
detects as spam into the junk folder using sieve...
There is also a plugin for dovecot that makes it easy for users to
reclassify stuff as spam or not spam by simply moving the messages to
the appropriate folder, but I think it is mainly designed for DSPAM...
anyone using it with spamassassin?
