The amount of spam being mailed around is getting beyond a joke.
My mail is delivered to a FreeBSD machine via sendmail, and I have been using procmail with a set of custom rules I've gradually honed to filter it out, but with only moderate success.
Today I discovered a fantastic program called spamassassin that plugs-in to procmail via a few extra lines in the .procmailrc configuration file, and so far, it is looking good - it has filtered out all but one spam email that I've received this evening.
Spamassassin is an executable and a set of Perl modules. If you already have Perl 5, installation is easy, as follows:
# perl -MCPAN -e shell cpan> conf prerequisites_policy ask cpan> install Mail::SpamAssassin cpan> quit
I thoroughly recommend it.
