i'm using clamav and spamassassin on my servers.

i update clamav (cron job) twice a day (its a 24/7 server)

i also have a 20.000 spam database which i use to 'sa-learn'
spamassassin, which gives me less than 1% of missed spam
and 0% of false possitives.

i personaly think that an open mailing list is a bad idea.
