To answer both your personnal email and the one to the list, I am not
using postfix but sendmail.

I am using amavis thourgh amavis-milter, that is a *very* old version
of amavis.

And I am using SpamAssassin through procmail. 

The reason I separated both of them is partly historical (at the timeI
started with them there was no amavisd-new that could call to SA) and
partly philosophical (even if it means expending the atttachments 2
times; on one hand anti-virus is the same configuration for every
users, it is a matter of security policy and no user is allowed to
change that, so it is checked at transport; spam filtering on the
other hand is really a matter of personnal choices, some may have
their own rules, etc. so a message could be treated differently for
each specific user, so it is checked at delivery).
