   That would be the responsibility of your ISP.  If they're not doing 
   their job, then maybe you might want to find a different provider of 
   this particular service.

Well, I'm happy with my ISP and have no plans to move *again*.  But I will
ask them again if they can do it.  The reply I got from them was: "In the
future Sonic.net could integrate SpamAssassin into Mailman but that's not
currently on anyones plate."
