Install the IP::Country perl modules (port: net/p5-IP-Country) and
uncomment the lines in /usr/local/etc/mail/spamassassin/init.pre to
enable Mail::SpamAssassin::Plugin::RelayCountry plugin, which causes
the Bayesian filters to learn which countries relay most spam to you.
Look for the discussion on 'ok_locales' in the Mail::SpamAssassin::Conf
perldoc. Set that to 'en' and messages in character sets other than
anything based on the Latin (and possibly Greek) alphabet will get a
higher spam score. You can put that into
/usr/local/etc/mail/spamassassin/local.cf for a site-wide effect or into
per-user ~/.spamassassin/user_prefs config files.
