since spamassassin is 'called' via configuration in exim.conf, i
don't see how you'd get around calling it based on certain
criteria, unless those criteria are also built into exim.conf.

i'd recommend leaving exim.conf alone (once spamassassin is
working and scanning incoming email) and have your .forward
(exim filter) file first check for debian-user and then check
for spam.

sequence matters. :)
