Reject/Discard Spam Question
Under what circumstances is inbound spam rejected upon being sent (and notifying the sender) as opposed to being received then later discarded (after being processed and marked as spam)?

If this is unclear, please let me know.

Thank you falko as always. Is it possible for Postfix to hold-off accepting the e-mail until it gets an 'ok' from SpamAssassin? It only takes a split-second to scan for spam anyhow, doesn't it?
