I've had very good results with CRM114.  I set up my mail to go through
spamassassin and amavis first, having configured them to only decorate
the emails (ie add headers), and then I let CRM114 loose on that. I then
toss the spam into a checkspam folder for storage. i retrain by moving
messages from inbox or checkspam into a reclassify folder, and have a
cron job that picks those up and swats CRM114s nose with them. I also
initially trained CRM114 with about 1000 good and bad messages to start,
3 or so years ago.

Now I get maybe a couple spam in my inbox per week, and maybe a few
borderline messages (eg crap from IDG or so) each month.
