This is good to know. This would be the ideal way to specify an account to
drop spam into. Just need to figure out how to have SpamAssassin deliver
positive hits into a mailbox other than INBOX. Using this method it'll
apply to all accounts no matter what.

Ok, in my particular case, I am subscribed to a large number of mailing
lists. On the current mail server I am running uw-imap, procmail and
mboxes. A cronjob runs a script every day that trims every mailbox in the
lists directory to only keep the 200 most recent messages. Works like a
charm. Once I switch to cyrus-imap I can use the expire flag to
automatically purge old messages from these mailing list mailfolders.

Just have to find a web based tool to do these things to make it available
to everyone on the server.
