Let me revise what I have said.
spamassassin is great, but is not a total solution to block spam; I have
not found anything better to block spam.
clamav is also great, and is nearly a total solution to filter e-mails
that are infested with virus.
spam filtering is a different problem and ends up being a bigger problem
than virus filtering because the solution is not as complete.
