Anyone know if there is any appliance-style solutions that utilize 
dspam?  Or even a turn-key (ala smoothwall-style, stick in a cd and go) 
project utilizing dspam?  I've had a ton of success with my personal 
mail using it.  I'm sitting at 97.5% accuracy over ~76k mails, but it 
depends on training the filter constantly -- Spam identification is only 
88.8% though.  I've not seen a false positive in a long time, either.
