I only use spamassassin as a last resort, and in fact, have not used it
for the last 9 months, because I have implemented RBLs, <g>  I prefer
blocking at the SMTP level rather then using CPU cycles for SA in the box.
SA is cool though.. All toll, I have a multilevel system for spam defense,
and this has worked extremely well for me.
