I don't use SpamAssassin, but I've read about it.  If you do use the Razor
module, you should give it a low weight, or disable it all together, since
it's not 100% reliable and has been known to throw away valid mail.

(I do use Razor in my procmail script, but I triple check the mail after Razor
says that it's spam.)

BTW, I understand that Vipul (of Vipul's Razor) is forming a company which,
I hope, will fix the problems with Razor.
