I know it's not *quite* what you're looking for, but Loftmail's email  
service includes *very* good spam filtering <http://loftmail.com/>.
They're an OpenBSD shop, (I assume spamd is part of their system but I  
don't know), and the majority of the spam filtering is so good, I  
barely think about it.  They also have custom rules and whitelisting  
etc... available through the webmail interface, (Horde, I believe).   
It's really astounding service for the price.

(Bruno, one of the Loftmail owners, is of course a long-time NYC*BUG  

I've run some of my most important email accounts through Loftmail for  
years now- (they used to be called BizIntegrators), and it's so good,  
I rarely even think about it.
