You'll need to set-up a transport agent on it, e.g. exim,
and have it handle mail to the world. SpamAssassin by
itself can't do this.


Cheers,

Why the heck would you use Linux for the sole reason of spamfiltering exchange?

It seems redundant and is asking for a bottle neck (from the exchange part)

I think you should just run your mailserver on the Linux box with spamassasin on it -- and then go from there.

Sorry - I wouldn't touch exchange with a barge-pole.
