May be it is not exactly an answer to your question, but we started to 
use real time black lists with postfix and it works pretty well (though 
some spam comes through). There have been no complains of false positive 
so far (almost 6 months).

I noticed how well it works when we switched it off today for 2 hours 
because of an error and the anti-virus programs started to jump.

And we get very seldom non-English spam.

I do not know if procmail has something similar.
