Which steps in the accompanying documentation the package provides are unclear to you?

What I meant is that if you 'rpm -qi spamassassin' you are given a first clue on how to configure Spamassassin for personal usage and if you 'rpm -ql spamassassin | grep doc/' you will find some text files (README, USAGE, INSTALL) that contain information on how to set it up for system wide usage. These docs also contain pointers to the Wiki and FAQ in case you run into trouble. It would be good to read those three docs so you have a general idea of what you'll be doing. Make backups of the configuration files involved, try to edit those as explained, test and *then* ask questions. Doing things in that order will definately help you get better at it.

* BTW Linuxquestions.org helps you in more than one way. Not only can you search LQ for threads containing the words "spamassassin" and "config", also when you have created a new thread you will find a section called "Similar Threads" at the bottom of the page pointing to thread titles with similar terms in the title.

excellent answer there. I'll also add, that if you want a step by step screenshot kind of manual, look at howtoforge.com
