seki-root> dspam_clean -p0 strombrg

To set up dspam for testing by just a single account:

1) Make sure that /usr/local/bin/dspam is executable by the user who
will do the test

2) Put this in the user's procmailrc (unusual - usually it's hooked into
the MTA) :

	# annotate in DSPAM header for filtering...

	:0 fhw
	| formail -a "$DSPAM_HEADER"

I've had dspam set up on my account for approximately 24 hours now.
It's blocked 55 messages that spamassassin didn't catch.  I've had to
whitelist my wife's e-mail address at work though - probably because
they have a big, silly disclaimer at the bottom of every message.
