Has anyone ever used spambouncer

hi there,

I'm looking at a program at the moment called spambouncer, it looks really good but I can't find much information about it on the net & the homepage is still 'under constuction'.

Has anyone got a good how-to for spambbouncer & postfix they feel like sharing with me?

From the spambouncer web site:

"CAUTION! The SpamBouncer is a powerful program, but complex to install and configure. To use it safely, a user must be familiar with the Unix operating system and understand basic programming in at least one programming language. It is not a good spam filter for the average Internet user."

Since you are running a Redhat/Fedora based distribution, the developers have already packaged spamassassin for you. Simply:

yum -y install spamassassin

If you are not using Evolution, create the file '/etc/procmailrc' with the content:
