	While I run (and like) this combination myself, there are at
least two caveats of which one ought to be aware:

	1) spamd (part of SpamAssassin) is written in perl.  This is
fine for a workstation, not so much for a high-volume mail server.
	2) installing spamass-milter requires rebuilding sendmail.  (I
have no idea about other MTAs.)  This usually sounds more
frightening than it is, but can still lead to complications.
