My setup looks like this (using spamd/spamc):

- Install SA from ports (mail/p5-Mail-SpamAssassin)
    This will put a file named in /usr/local/etc/rc.d/
    Rename that file to, and make it executable.

- I use procmail, and have the following as the first recipe in

# check for UCE, UBE with SpamAssassin

* ^X-Spam-Status: Yes
