I only report those that I know are spam, I do not do it automatically
but manually. Well actually I do it manually but on an email address
that I seem to have inherited because of spammers, I have never used it.

The method here is to  run through SA, and then DCCPROC. Any mail that
then arrives at my inbox with a SA spam warning, I verify it and if it
is spam do a ricochet and dcc -t many on it. Of course I am sending it
to one of the open servers as I a dialup only.
