Check out MailScanner ( for a Virus/Spam mail
filtering product that plugs into the sendmail/exim/whatever flow and uses
SpamAssassin for it's main spam checking/marking.

I use it to deliver to my cyrus server and just wrote a sieve rule to move any
emails where the subject starts with {SPAM?} (the default in MailScanner) to my
SPAM folder.  There are lots of other stuff you can do with it also. ;)
