Messages to your spam@ account are handled by the .qmail-default file, and
therefore is being piped through spamc.  This is why you observed the mail
bounce if you removed the .qmail-default file.  Since you have created the
virtual account 'spam' the message is delivered to the 'spam' users Maildir.
If you want to override this you should create a .qmail-spam file with the 

  | /home/vpopmail/bin/vdelivermail '' /home/vpopmail/domains/jimtest.com/spam/

In order to fully understand this you need to have a good understanding of
how qmail's virtual domains work.  The .qmail-default file is called for
every vpopmail account that has not been overridden by a .qmail file in the
domain's directory.  


Good luck,
