Exclamation SpamAssassin + Qmail + Vpopmail

I recently setup a Qmail server and I use vpopmail to offer pop3 services. Now I want to enable Spamassassin for users who wish their email to be filtered. I have searched google and have not had any success so far, has anyone successfully accomplished this? If so, I would love some help.

You can put that in a users .qmail file in the homedir under vpopmail.

Their are also a few switches to run spamd with for vpopmail.
I run spamd with

spamd -c -a -d -v -x -u vpopmail and it all works fine over here

| /usr/local/bin/spamc |/usr/local/bin/maildir ./Maildir

That's a great idea! Unfortunately, I was not able to get it to work. I don't have a "maildir" program with either my vpopmail or qmail distrivutions. What distribution did you get that from? I tried to just use :

|/usr/bin/spamc ./Maildir/

But that did not seem to work either. It does work with some of my other qmail scripts though.

I am very new to this vpopmail/qmail thing, so I am sure I have some configuration issue or somehting. The user does receive mail when I take the .qmail file out of the directory, and if I pass a email STDIN to the spamc it spits it out just right...

Any suggestions here would be really nice.
