Spamassassin has always been extremely slow for me even with local tests
only. Afaik the slowness of the application (perl?) is to blame. A while
back there was talk of rewriting spamassassin in C but I haven't seen
anything surface. Imho at the end of the day you are far better of with
postfix with some good rules which will stop a ton of spam attempts and
then add a drop of dspam to kill the rest. Has a bit of a learning curve
though but there are quite a few nice howto's to be found on google.
