Those 3 tools are the things I could think of having been mentioned on the

Mostly procmail's useful in conjunction with one or more other
spam-detection tools.  I'd never suggest trying to use it on its own for
anything beyond maybe basic blacklisting.  Personally, I use procmail to
decide what exactly should be done with mail that spamassassin has examined
(some gets the bit bucket, some goes into a "spam" mailbox and some goes
into my inbox); it's also handy for getting mailing list traffic filtered
into separate mailboxes, outright refusing messages with executable
attachments and things along those lines...
