Configured SpamAssassin Today [Log Review]


Today I installed 'spamd' service on my email server and while everything appears to be working fine (I didn't break anything) I am not sure if the end result is functioning correctly. Simply I someone to just review my log output of how mail is flowed and re-injected back into the MTA and see if it looks normal or if it's not doing something properly. I have not received any spam yet so I can't tell if it's working to re-write headers but lets assume so for now. Just based on the following log report, does spamd and postfix appear to be working as expected?

Code:
Mar  4 16:15:05 mail postfix/smtpd[1477]: connect from
mail.adl.gov[xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx]
Mar  4 16:15:06 mail postgrey[1147]: action=pass, reason=triplet
found, client_name=mail.adl.gov, client_address=xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx,
sender=carlos@adl.gov, recipient=carlos@iamghost.com
Mar  4 16:15:06 mail postfix/smtpd[1477]: 4E01183F: client=mail.adl.gov[1.2.3.4]
