    And procmail.

    Well, as I don't use it that way, I'm not the right person to answer your
    question; but I'll say what I would do.

    [spamassassin comes with documentation: please read it, this is

    The setup is the same I reported... on this thread, to another person, 21

    Then, file /etc/procmailrc would simply have this rule:

    | /usr/bin/spamc

    That triggers spamassassin; it doesn't move nor delete anything, but
    depending on its configuration adds a header, modifies the header or adds
    a text explaining why it is spam. That's configurable.

    That depends on what each user wants. The above rule will add a header
    (X-Spam-Status: Yes) that has to be checked. How? Well it can be done by
    the user's mail client program. In that case, they have to use the
    filtering capacity of whatever program they use.

    Or, they can simply create their own ~/.procmailrc file, containing this
    at the beginning:

    * ^X-Spam-Status: Yes

    Or something similar.
