How's it doing that? Is it invoking spamc after each pop3 fetch 
client-side? Or is it somehow getting Dovecot to do it on the server side?

I normally run SA from sendmail via MIMEDefang to reject the most egregious 
spam (score higher than 10) and viruses and then run SA again from 
/etc/procmailrc to mark "probable" spam (scores between 5 and 10) during 
delivery into my IMAP folders. (I could do it all in MD but my load is 
small enough that it hasn't been worth the coding effort.)
