Description Marc Soda 2002-02-20 08:24:35 UTC
SpamAssassin is a mail filter to identify spam.  It has a rules
based system which assigns points to an email and leaves you to 
decide the outcome.  It plugs into many mail systems, such as, 
procmail, kmail, qmail, postfix, and others.  It also supports
various blacklists, like the RBL and

It consists of a Perl module, a few Perl scripts, and an optional
client and daemon version written in C.  I put it in dev-perl, 
although it might do better in net-mail.  

This package rules, by far the best spam-catcher I've used.
