spamassassin is a great anti-spam bot. Only real downside, is that you
do have to receive the spam locally before spamassassin can dispose of
it, but it does work well. I see only about 10-12 spams a day, and I get
several hundred emails a day.

My spamassassin is configured to throw spam into its own mail folder,
premarked for deletion. Ocassionally, I go in there and look to see if
some message was put there erroneously. I haven't found any errors in
the past months, and I'm always amazed at how many messages are there,
when I do look. And, when I leave the folder, they're all gone, because
they've already been marked for deletion, and my ua is set to delete on
folder exit.
