There are cronjobs for SpamAssassin and Clam AV present:

SpamAssassin: /etc/cron.d/av-spam-sa-update

This updates the rule files bi-daily if I recall correctly.

Clam AV: /etc/cron.daily/freshclam

This performs a daily update of the virus definitions for Clam AV.
However: Clamd also does a check on startup and if it realizes it's
virus definitions are outdated, it'll force an update during restart of
the service. Likewise Spamd runs sa-update on first start, too, which
brings it up to date.

All other services either don't auto-update against third party
services, or use their own data-source which is generated off the stream
of incoming emails. Milter-Greylist for example uses it's own locally
stored DB3 database and Milter-GeoIP stores its data in MySQL.

So upon installation of the packages you don't have to configure
anything for these updates to be performed.

With best regards
