Not weird to me - it's how I do it. I prefer separate tools for separate jobs. I use MailScanner for virus scanning with Sophos and Trend, and procmail/spamc/spamd for anti-spam. This is on my personal server - at work I run MailScanner with SA support, as the users don't have shell accounts (everything's in LDAP) and trying to explain a user_prefs file to my userbase would be like herding cats.
