Installing SpamAssassin via CPAN

I am trying to install SpamAssassin via CPAN but when I type the command "install Mail::SpamAssassin", I get the error "The module Mail::SpamAssassin isn't available on CPAN." How do I fix this?

Do you have take the time to correctly configure CPAN on his first execution ? Personnaly I have correctly installing spamassassin via CPAN. May be you don't have specify enough mirrors and the only mirrors that you have specified don't have SpamAssassin on it. Try to reconfigure CPAN with a lot of mirrors.
