I am using postfix+amavis (doing spamassassin)+postgrey and I rarely get any
spam come through.
I run a fairly light weight email server only doing a coulple of thousand
emails a day.
Mailgraph is a great port to integrate as well as it graphs how many emails
have been blocked due to spam/virus etc.

I didn't know about this one.  Is the installation and use documented 
somewhere?  (In case I can't find anything on Google).
