Q.  Hey why is that message getting through my spam filter.  I get error:

Feb 1 17:50:17 www spamc[4358]: skipped message, greater than max message size (512000 bytes)
A. Spamc will not insert any headers if message is bigger than the default of half a meg. I think this is a bit small by today's standards. So I run spamc like this:
spamc -u spamchk -s 5000000
-u is the user to run as -s is the max size in bytes
