Spam Filters for Slackware 10.0


I have Slackware 10.0, and despite the learning curve, I'm working my way through it. Right now, all of my email accounts are set up in Kmail, but I want to use a spam filter to screen out the hordes of junk that come through. Spamassassin gets high marks, but I can't even figure out how to install it, much less use it. The language is SOooo over my head, it's ridiculous.

Is there another package that's a little more for the common man, or can someone walk me through Spamassassin installation?

I haven't done that myself, but a few other must :)

There's heaps of hits on

If Spamassasin really is too tough you can always use
KMails filters, and only stick mail from know people into
your inbox or stuff like that.


Cheers,
Tink
