No that isn't correct

If you are settings QMAILQUEUE="/var/qmail/bin/qmail-scanner-queue.pl" in
your smtpd run file, then qmail-scanner will run for all SMTP connections.
However if RELAYCLIENT is set, then qmail-scanner wont try to run the
spamassassin subroutines. The antivirus will still run though.

Alternatively, if you have coded the QMAILQUEUE commands into your tcp.smtp
(rather than the smtpd run script), then qmailscanner will not be run at all
for pop-before-smtp users. The only fix for this would be to modify the
vpopmail source and change the lines where the open-smtp file is generated
and make it include the QMAILQUEUE command also.
