I had mail delivery turned off. I thought I could exclude an e-mail client entirely like on yahoo or google
and just work from the archive.

It seems much cleaner to me to keep all the spam scoring in spamassassin then to spread it out between two applications.
Also, we have our own real time black hole software that works in conjuction with spamassassin. That would need to be
rewritten if mimedefang manipulates the score.
