Everybody who reacted I say "thank you!"
I'm gonna try a few filter programs to see what does the job best.
Beginning with spamassassin (of maybe spamoracle or spamprobe).

In all cases I have to adjust the local mailer statement in my
sendmail. It runs the way it came out-of-the-box (fbsd-4.7R)
Local mail is *not* delivered by procmail by default.

I think I have to put the following lines into

FEATURE(local_procmail,`',`procmail -t -Y -a $h -d $u')

Am I right about this or do I put them in

If procmail runs w/ sendmail any integration with anti-spam will be an
easy job w/ all these fine advices I got ;-))
