How ?  What did you expect to happen and what happened instead ?

If you get "Cannot open load file" errors, then you have to add your
home directory to `load-path' like so:

(add-to-list 'load-path (expand-file-name "~"))

You also have to tell rmail-spam-library what is spam, which you do
by customizing the variable `rmail-spam-definitions-alist'.

My mail goes through a filter before I get it, which writes lots of
guff in the headers.  The spams have an X-Spam-Flag: YES header, so I
just use this:

(setq rmail-spam-definitions-alist
      '(((from . "") (to . "") (subject . "")
         (contents . "X-Spam-Flag: YES")
         (action . output-and-delete))))
