Also look into postfix along with policyd-weight 

That's all I use and I probably get about 2 spam a day... I used to get 
40-50...  in a nutshell it checks multiple dnsbls and uses a scoring 
system to block it before you ever get the message body.  And it caches 
results so it's pretty light weight.
