Thanks very much.
That URL told me all I need to know.
I don't know how I got so old without knowing more about spamassassin.
I guess I always assumed I could trust it to do its work, like my TDs.
I've installed antidrug.cf , and will see how that deals
with these nice men concerned (rightly) about my physical state.
(That accounts for about 70% of the spam that gets through to me, I think.)

I do actually feed missed spam automatically to Mr Bayes.
I'm not quite sure how I could automatically feed ham to him,
as it would seem to mean keeping new mail separate,
whereas at the moment I filter it (with kmail)
into about a dozen folders.
