You can go a long way to filtering the spam out.

Spamassassin - good but in my view a lot of maintenance

Dspam - maintenance free for the most part, and excellent.

My stats for Dspam:

TP True Positives: 135370
TN True Negatives: 148860
FP False Positives: 1236
FN False Negatives: 9752
SC Spam Corpusfed: 3733
NC Nonspam Corpusfed: 2883

SHR Spam Hit Rate 93.28%
HSR Ham Strike Rate: 0.82%
OCA Overall Accuracy: 96.28%
