	Hope I am not highjacking this thread (at least not totally),
	but is there any summary of things-to-do to get dspam running?
	to get it in 'learn' mode??  No far I have created a list of
	trusted users/groups.  Now what?

	Re a -devel port, my experience with most of the devel suites
	is that they are risky (to put it politely:).  I would advise
	anybody who installs a -devel port of anything to have the
	stable/tested port around....
