SpamAssassin is a mail filter which attempts to identify spam using text
analysis and several internet-based realtime blacklists.
Using its rule base, it uses a wide range of heuristic tests on mail
headers and body text to identify "spam", also known as unsolicited
commercial email.
Once identified, the mail can then be optionally tagged as spam for later
filtering using the user's own mail user-agent application.

You should complete the following post-installation tasks:
1) Read /usr/local/share/doc/spamassassin/INSTALL
and /usr/local/share/doc/spamassassin/UPGRADE
BEFORE enabling SpamAssassin for important changes
2) Edit the configuration in /usr/local/etc/mail/spamassassin,
in particular /usr/local/etc/mail/spamassassin/init.pre
You may get lots of annoying (but harmless) error messages
if you skip this step.
3) To run spamd, add the following to /etc/rc.conf:
4) If this is a new installation, you should run sa-update
and sa-compile. If this isn't a new installation, you
should probably run those commands on a regular basis
5) Install mail/spamass-rules if you want some third-party
spam-catching rulesets
By default, spamd runs as root (the AS_ROOT option). If you wish
to change this, add the following to /etc/rc.conf:
spamd_flags="-u spamd -H /var/spool/spamd"
