Serverside spam filter - Linux / Unix Administration

Hi , i want to configure mail server which can filter spam using Bayesian classifier. I start experimenting with SpamAssassin and i am not sure how everything should look like. As much as i understand the user must specify if the mail is spam or ham, until he create appropriate database. How have u didi it , can u give me example . Thanks for any help , because i am in the middle of nowhere...

    Have a look at Eric Raymond's bogofilter. You can prime it
    with a body of spam and ham. It works really well, with
    nary a false positive and an excellent tag rate of real
    spam.

    Take care,

    Bayesian filtering is user specific. You might find setting up spamassassin
    easier.

    Hmmm, on the server? For me, all text/html is spam. For you, it might not
    be. On a server, I would rather reject mail than classify it. If you
    classify mail, you have to look for false positives and that essentially
    nullifies the advantages of classification.
    Filtering really doesn't scale up.
