You mean dspam as --deamon? Yes, that was the recommendation in the
documentation stating it was highly recommended not to do the other
method. So, yes, my postfix file calls amavisd (for clamscan) which
feeds it back into postfix which then calls dspam.

If you decide it is a good idea, I wouldn't mind helping out.

As I see it, dspam creates its .sig files. I do not believe these are
kept around long term. Therefore, it is possible that the signature file
disappears before one could move something out of SPAM (or into it, but
I don't care about that). Am I misunderstanding something?

At least it works for non-virtual at the moment.

Sounds good. Have a great day.
