Oh, I disagree, it's not that bad a place to ask - How about Mailman FAQ
Three methods -
#1 is MTA integration
#2 uses patches - This is what I do, and it works great. Unfortunately, the
link http://jamesh.id.au is no longer good, so you will have to get the
patches elsewhere. Google spamassassin.py or see
You will need to add the following to your mm_cfg.py:
SPAMASSASSIN_HOST = 'localhost'
SPAMASSASSIN_DISCARD_SCORE = 500
SPAMASSASSIN_HOLD_SCORE = 3
SPAMASSASSIN_MEMBER_BONUS = 0
# You can also do a similar thing for Clam if you get that patch
# Scan messages for viruses using Clam AntiVirus
CLAMAV_DISCARD = 0
CLAMAV_CLAMDSCANPATH = '/usr/bin/clamdscan'
#3 Procmail also works, of course.
