Actually I know what I'm doing and I'm quite happy with it. I do use spamd
(the wraper implements spamc) and because postfix is trying to deliver it
to a perticular user, I can easily implement per-user settings (-u on
spamc). It's also a bonus doing this at the delivery agent because I don't
have worry about not checking out bound mail (As I would have to if I did
this with a cf). Frankly any extra overhead due to it being pipe rather
than lmtp is dwarfed by SpamAssassin. It's quick n' easy, for me it's the
perfect solution ;)
