Kmail does not have to be the pop client. Fetchmail fetches, procmail does its 
thing, taking care of spamassassin and clamav, and exim places in /var/mail 
directories. Kmail can then retrieve the mail from there.

Kmail can call the spamassassin and clamav itself. However, it is not 
programmed correctly (these need be done on background threads) so it becomes 
"disabled" until everything is done. That is why I switched.
