Thanks a lot for the advice.

I have tried with spamassasin but for some reason can not having work 
correctly with sendmail. I am reading in detail documentation. I know 
this sounds like something stupid but I am starting my third try 
starting from zero, for some reason everything install correcly and 
at the end have a non receiving email installation (have checked port 
on inetd, under sendmail configuration, nothing). What I do not 
get  is what components do I need. Just spamassasin or spamd only , 
anyway, learning and having fun with it until I can know how to do 
it. Otherwise instead of help that organization will be giving more 
problems besides the ones they have.

I will try openwebmail.

Thanks a lot.
