Well, this might not directly answer your questions, but I just got through 
setting up KMail and SpamAssassin a couple of hours ago.  As a matter of 
fact, I had never even heard of SpamAssassin until you posted, asking how to 
set it up.

just an apt-get install spamassassin

kmail site, one for passing all emails to spamc, and one for dealing with 
messages that that get marked as spam.

If you are only interested in fine-tuning your spamassassin settings, then I 
would suggest you send an email to one of the lists listed at:
