I can't speak for the others, but in my case, I am the administrator 
for Mailman, but not for the main mailserver, nor even for the 
mailserver that MailMan runs on. I can install the spamassassin 
software in the Mailman account; I can even install the spamassassin 
server software on another server that I run; but I cannot integrate 
spamassassin with the main mailserver in any way. Our current mail 
system was designed to discourage server-side spam blocking.
