I'd +1 this one.
The big problem is, it seems attractive to put SpamAssassin right
into the core of the server -- but that isn't really the right
option for everyone.
- - not everyone wants their mail filtered.
- - at the SMTP level, you don't yet know which user account(s) will
be receiving the mail -- as a result, you wind up using the same
settings for everyone.
- - not everyone wants to use the same spamfilter settings.
- - allowing people to train their own Bayes dbs is much more accurate
(90% -> 97% typically)
- - efficiency, when using spamc and spamd, is pretty damn high anyway.
The only failure of the procmail method is that you can't protect
mail that isn't delivered to a user -- so aliases that then go
to another host are missed.
