my understanding from Tom's note was that 5.5.x-dev shouldnt be used for
production servers (as the 5.3-4.x tree was):
      Many people got comfortable using development releases on production
servers during the 5.3 series.  We don't recommend doing that with
this series as the releases won't be thoroughly tested.

assuming you are using qmailadmin as a front for vpopmail, you should be
able to make *custom* .qmail files by enabling (in qmailadmins configure):
        ./configure \
          --[all your special options]
          --enable-modify-spam \
          --enable-spam-command="|preline /usr/local/bin/maildrop
/var/qmail/control/mailfilter" \

and then in each user (through qmailadmin) there is a little *checkbox* to
enable the spam pipe command.

Rick/Ken: spamassassin processing via vdelivermail is greatly anticipated.
 will vdelivermail be able to handle *filtering* as well.. or will that
have to be passed off to something like maildrop still?

from what i've seen, tapping spamassassin at SMTP (tcpserver or
qmail-scanner) has been very wasteful and it slows the SMTP connection,
since it processes all (including nondeliverable) mails.

and maybe a wishlist item: i've been fumbling an idea for defered mail
delivery (a small period 30-60 seconds)?  then SA would be able to learn
*spam* from spamtrap accounts, and have a greater ability to flag that new
spam for real accounts.  i dont know how much vpop can do with qmails
queue, maybe it could run with a tracking table in mysql.
