One way to integrate postfix with spamassassin is to use spamass-milter (requires postfix 2.3 or newer). Another is to use spamd/spamc through your delivery agent, e.g. procmail. A third possibility is to use amavisd-new. The spamassassin site has some documentation on MTA integration here.

You can eliminate a good chunk of the spam by using RBLs, such as spamhaus.

I use amavisd-new with postfix. This allows you to use spamassassin and antivirus such as clamav. I'd also suggest blacklists (see above) and greylisting. The latter two catch more spam for me than SA does.

Good how-tos on the postfix site (www.postfix.org)
