I was going to recommend that, but from my experience, there is no real
*easy* way to allow users directly to modify their own settings. I am
probably wrong though.

Another solution (which is also not a do-it-yourself), is

We switched from Postini to an internal Barracuda cluster and have never
looked back.

I might add that I personally run an ancient version of SpamAssassin on
my personal box which still works, and I have an upgraded box coming
down the pipe. I have no experience with having inexperienced users
manage their own account with it though.
