OK - perhaps my question should have been directed to 'MailScanner' list

My usage is for company owned/operated mail servers and my specialty is
5 - 50 users on the network

Thus, I am thinking that it should be a global database

I am using MailScanner and it seems to be the 'caller' of spamassassin.
Spamassassin evaluates and scores the incoming mails and MailScanner
appropriately tags the header and sieve will direct the 5+ scores into
the users SPAM folder.
