Or you could use MailScanner to scan the e-mails as they come into the box and
then the delivering instance of your mta (sendmail, exim, etc.) just does normal
ltmp.  MailScanner attempts to be pretty resource friendly as it scans bunches
of e-mails at a time (if they are available) rather than forking off multiple
spamassassin instances, etc.

If you are wanting individual spamassassin rules, then going the MailScanner way
will have more setup, but it also provides virus scanning to boot. :)
