Just as an added suggestion: these two (very!) lightweight packages suffice to 
keep SPAM out of our company pretty much completely. Both are best used to 
reject mails before they even have to be delivered (in Postfix, this is a 
sender or recipient restriction, see the websites of the two projects for 
more details on how to set them up), so as a added bonus, people don't have 
to scroll through endless lists of mails marked as "***SPAM***".

I've had a setup with amavisd-new, spamassassin and clamav on another mail 
server (basically the same thing Chuck described), but for our current usage, 
these two are efficient enough not to warrant the upgrade to more powerful 
hardware (which would be required to run SpamAssassin properly).
