I know this is going to sound like a newbie question, but I'm having a
brain hiccup and can't seem to completely wrap my head around this...
I'm relatively new to postfix, but I've got a MailScanner / Postfix
configuration set up and working. Traditionally I would have set up a
procmail rule to handle the spamscore and dump SPAM in to a folder.
However, I'm seeing notes about the huge performance hit that I'll take
if I enable procmail in the postfix/main.cf file.
My question is this - should I be using procmail to filter the SPAM that
MailScanner/Spamassassin tag? I know that MailScanner is taking things
out of the HOLD queue and tagging them, then replacing them back into
the incoming queue for Postfix to deal with, but I figured that
MailScanner would handle the SPAM between those two steps so as not to
add to Postfix's load...
Thanks to all!
