postfix has a generic filter concept. any filter can be used, including

a filter can also be a chain of filters, e.g. postfix -> clamav -> bogofilter
-> spamassassin -> postfix.

filters can be applied to all mail, or they can be triggered by access maps
(e.g. recipient or sender address) or body/header checks rules.

on a more general note, postfix has the best anti-spam capabilities of any MTA
that i've ever seen, and i've worked with most freely available ones over the
years - exim4 is the only one that i haven't spent several months or years
working with on production servers...i've done little more than glance at it.
it looks to me as if it's new and improved more-of-the-same, so i'm not
terribly interested in it.
