"This tutorial shows how to set up an Ubuntu Jeos based server as a spamfilter in Gateway mode. In the end, you will have a SpamSnake Gateway which will relay clean emails to your MTA. You will also be able to view your incoming queue, train your SpamSnake and carry out a few more advanced operations via MailWatch.

"I cannot offer any guarantees that this will work for you, the same way it's working for me.

"I will use the following software:
• Web Server: Apache 2 with PHP 5
• Database Server: MySQL 5.1.37
• Mail Server: Postfix v2.6.5
• Caching DNS Server: Dnsmasq v2.50
