SpamAssassin doesn't have to be used with procmail. If you're using
sendmail, then you can configure MimeDefang as a milter, and MimeDefang
can be set up to use SpamAssassin for spam filtering. This provides
quite efficient spam filtering and is easy to use.

It's also not really a Cyrus issue - spam filtering is generally done
entirely on the MTA or MUA, not the IMAP server.
