SpamAssassin does not work too well on Windows, last I checked.
It is great as a Linux based app, last I checked.

This should give you information on configuring it for Windows systems:

As for recommendations...you may be happer swallowing a few bucks and purchasing GFI MailEssentials.  It is a great little product and many of the top Exchange experts recommend it as a good, inexpensive (relative to others) solution.  It's one of the top products on MSExchange.org.

Personally I prefer the IronPort devices.  These, however, are not cheap and are usually used in mid to large (500+ user to 50,000+ user) environments.
