I was wondering if anyone could perhaps offer me advice on how to
spamassassin into our email server?

We currently use sendmail as the mta.  This is on a debian woody system.
I have 
installed cyrus as a mailer so we are able to use imap mail boxes.  The
delivery to 
cyrus as the internal mailer is done with a  mailertable entry like:

mail.domain.com.au		cyrus:mail.domain.com.au

This works well.  We would now like to install spamassassin to provide
mail herders to 
be used for filtering.  My problem is that I currently don't use
procmail and 
spamassassin seems to rely on using it.  My current idea is to enable
procmail using:


so sendmail knows about it as a local mailer and setup procmailrc rules
to call 
spamassassin.  I would create a dummy host with MX pointing to myself
mailertable entries like this to get mail finally delivered to cyrus:

mail.domain.com.au		`	procmail:dummy.domain.com.au
dummy.domain.com.au		cyrus:mail.domain.com.au

Can anyone please let me know if this is the correct approach?  Or if
not then what 
the correct one would be?
Thanks for your time,

Hiya all
I killed my linux partition quite some time ago and haven't had
time to fix it (kde 3.1 and xfree86 should not be upgraded
together while you're experimenting with prelink :()
Does anyone have copies of the latest gentoo release and an up
to date package repository.  If so can I grab a copy sometime
pretty please?  I'll provide blanks needed.

Thanks in advance

Joshua McKinney
