Spamassassin works very well with procmail. After my mailing list
recipes in ~/.procmailrc, I have the following: 

# Run things past SpamAssassin
| /usr/bin/spamassassin --local

# Anything it catches, throw in the junk bin
* ^X-Spam-Status: Yes

The --local is just because I don't like waiting for DNS queries to
traverse the Internet for every message, and enables more tests if it is
