It's a wiki, you can correct mistakes if you find them, and improve
the information that is there.

The problem is that, like the leading dash that you discovered should
not be there, the same is also true for the closing dash. So this
file '18559-' doesn't exist, but '18559' does.
I think that the leading and trailing dashes in the wiki were supposed
to be substitutes for quote symbols.

Probably. Find info for your distro about that. See if it's running
after you reboot.

Like the wiki says, the simplest method is to use the SpamAssassin
plugin. Maybe you should consider that.

There are few places on the interweb talking about this. e.g.:
Using proxychains: http://www.gnewsense.org/Documentation/Tor
Using torsocks (in German):
It isn't worth a nickel to two guys like you or me,
but to a collector it is worth a fortune
