MIMEDefang integrates with SpamAssassin at the Perl module level.
So it's a bit different from running the command-line spamassassin tool
or the spamd daemon.

I do know that some people interface MIMEDefang with spamd instead of
using the built-in SpamAssassin support, and I believe the spamd
protocol has a way to pass the name of the local user so per-user
config files can be read.  However, I'm not familiar with using
SpamAssassin that way.

I assume so... let us know. :)
