The following ".procmailrc" script can be placed in each user's home
directory so that procmail will deliver messages marked as spam into a
paricular mailbox named "spam".  I assume your users have IMAP access so
they will be able to view the spam folder.  Maybe this can be done on
systemwide basis, but I haven't thought about that.

MAILDIR=$HOME/mail       # Make sure this directory exists!

  # Move Mailscanner marked spam to Spam folder
