"scan all messages" and spam checking?

If "Scan All Messages" is set to no, do the plain-text messages get the
anti-spam/SpamAssassin treatment, just no virus scanning? Or do they just
get moved over to /var/spool/mqueue with no analysis at all?
And one more puzzlement... I moved my mail service from HP-UX 11.0 to
Solaris 8 yesterday. Both use mailscanner; they only new wrinkle is that
I've turned on SpamAssassin on the Sun box. On the Sun, I see the syslog
messages for "mailscanner...: Notified postmaster about [number] infections"
but I don't get any email like I used to on the HP. I've just wired in
my own address in mailscanner.conf to see if this solves the problem.
