I don't send to a different box, but do send spam over score 13 to a 
different account. After the spamassassin check in filter_end:

         # dump all spam over 13 to spamdrop
         if ($hits >= 13) {
             # Add a header with original recipients, just for info
             action_add_header("X-Orig-Rcpts", join(", ", @Recipients));

             # Remove original recipients
             foreach $recip (@Recipients) {
                 $res = delete_recipient($recip);
                 if ($res == 0) { action_add_header("X-Rcpts-Res", 

             # Send to spam address
