Managing Spam

I'm after a program to help manage our spam.

Basically we are running qmail/vpopmail with spam assassin + antivirus. This is working ok, but still a lot of spam is getting through and we are getting many complaints.

I was hoping for some way to be able to say view everyones mail tagged by spam assassin over a score of say 1, and then remark it as spam or delete it...

Would this be possible? Or is there a better way of protecting from spam?

I'd suggest an excellent option to be DSPAM  http://www.nuclearelephant.com

I use it everywhere from my laptop to a number of different mail servers with excellent results.

I found that simply by implementing RBLs (I use 6 free ones) I cut my SPAM load by about 80%.

I have gone with SpamAssassin on Qmail, doing very well.
