"...this is a great book for those who want to set up their own spam mail filters and get rid of that annoying junk mail."
--James Ko, Amazon.com Review, June 2005

"[SpamAssassin] can be arcane. Powerful, but arcane. And, when it comes to publishing books about powerful, but arcane products, O'Reilly tends to get it right. They did as well with this one. If you need to manage or set up SpamAssassin, then SpamAssassin is your book."
--David Giwirtz, OutlookPower.com, February 2005

"...Schwartz's SpamAssassin is the item of choice for anyon who would customize its rules, create new rules, and take full advantage of SpamAssassin's advanced features..."
--Bookwatch, February 2005

"An essential resource for anyone responsible for providing spam protection at server level, and a fascinating read for those with an interest in understanding the problem."
--Major Keary, PC Update, December 2004

"This is easily one of the most clearly written and understandable books on configuring the software that I have read. SpamAssassin is highly recommended for anyone on a Unix-like system who is considering using the program as a spam control solution"
--Harold McFarland, Midwest Book Review, November 2004

"It's a good thing we new have this book to supplement SpamAssassin's sometimes lacking online documentation...This is an indispensable book for anybody who wants heavy-duty spam-filtering on their e-mail, from corporate sysadmins to technically savvy individuals who run their own mail servers."
