I have a directory containing about 50,000 email messages,

What is the best (quickest) way of passing these messages through spamassassin
and deleting those that fail the test.
[I'm running spamd on the machine in question.]
A simple script - if appropriate - would be very much appreciated.

They are in maildir format - 50,000 separate files.
