Have a look at http://www.mailscanner.info/ Mailscanner is easy to setup, can scan your incoming (and outgoing) mail for viruses (using free anti-virus scanners for linux - look at the docs), filters spam in its own right and also integrates with spamassasin - the mailscanner docs will even give you instructions on how to set up spamassasin. It will also bring the dead back to life.

Ok so the last bit was exaggerated - the rest is true :)

Are you running Procmail? If so, setting up Spamassassin is a two step process: Install the software, then add the Procmail rules that are part of the installation to your .procmailrc file.
If you are not yet running Procmail, set it up. It's one of the more useful packages that come with your Linux system.
