I recommend bogofilter for per-user filtering.  Spamassassin is also
highly recommended for site use.  I tend to dislike DNS-based
filtering because it has a high rate of false positives, and it causes
your users to lose legitimate mail if it's rejected at the mail
server.  With bogofilter or SA the mail is tagged with a header that
the user can then filter into a spam mailbox and review for false
positives (or delete on sight if they really want to).
