Spam has evolved from a nusance to a threat. SysAdms need a strategy for combating spam. You can use filtering software loaded on all your users computers, but that takes a lot of time to install and maitenance can be real drag on your time and resources. A better way is to use a centralised device which filters your spam before it enters your enterprise. This "Anti-Spam Gateway" is a lot easier to manage and maintain than individually installed client software. Additionally, it can be tuned to be a lot more effective.

SpamAssassin-ClamAV-Procmail-Howto

This document describes how to install SpamAssassin (for filtering SPAM) and ClamAV (for filtering viruses, trojans, worms, etc.) and how to invoke them by using procmail recipes. It is suitable for scenarios where Sendmail or Postfix deliver emails to local users. It should work (maybe with slight changes concerning paths etc.) on all *nix operating systems. I tested it on Debian Woody so far.
