Does anyone have experience of running dspam & cyrus?  (with sendmail & 
without procmail)

Right now, I use cyrus & MailScanner, where the latter filters virus using 
Kaspersky antivirus. It works fine, and I especially like the way 
MailScanner handles mail by using to queues, one for incoming, and then 
delivers to the out queue once emails are scanned. This makes upgrading 
very easy, since stopping the virus filter doesn't really matter, it just 
delays delivery. This works great, but now I need to add a spam filter. I 
could use SpamAssassin, it should play well with MailScanner, I guess, but 
I'm curious about dspam.

It seems to me that dspam out of the box is used instead of the local 
mailer, and hence cannot easily be used with cyrus, but I guess that 
doesn't mean it can't be done, just that it might be a bit difficult. I 
also want plussed users, we use it a lot.

Also, I would like to have drop folders where users can put spam, instead 
of or as compliment to forwarding the emails.

Main quiz is how to set up sendmail, really... but also tips on setting up 
dspam building stats from cyrus dropfolders are relevant.

Any ideas/tips?
