Unhappy Mail routing with postfix + courier + SA

Hi all, I'm using Ubuntu 7.04 with postfix & courier. I have set up postfix to use MySQL for my user/domain management. I installed SpamAssassin and it seems to be working ok, but with the rules I'm using, it simply marks the X-Spam-Flag header as YES. I'd like to have all messages with this header to be routed to a separate inbox (named spam). I don't need separate spam inboxes for my different users, just one global spam box will suffice. I've been googling and reading tutorials for hours but haven't been able to find an answer. Do I need to have postfix invoke procmail to do the routing? I would think it would just be a simple rule to look for this header and change the recipient based on its status.

Please help!

I use amavisd with postfix to send spam to a quarantine account. That may be a solution for you.


courier, email, postfix, spamassassin
