No for everything that clamav gives a clean bill of health, it tells 
kmail to go get the mail when a mailfile in /var/mail is closed after 
procmail writes it there. Kmail looks at the headers and if spamd said 
it was spam, sorts it to the spam folder. procmail takes care of the 
viri so kmail never sees it at all.

If not spam, it gets sorted into the appropriate mail folder by kmail. 
All triggered by inotifywait exiting with the name of the file, bash 
then takes the correct action and restarts inotifywait, all in a 
millisecobd or so.  That bash script I called mailwatcher. An older 
version that might need tweaking for you system & names is on my web 
page in the sig. Be my guest.
