Smile Sendmail spamassassin & mail gateway

I assumed this would be a simple task but it has exceded my Linux knowledge.

I have setup a linux machine (FC2) that accepts mail from the internet and relays it to my original mail server - inside my network.

That wasn't too difficult.

Before I had the relay working I was accepting the mail on the FC2 machine and delivering it locally. There I hnad configured spamassassin to mark emails from my yahoo account as spam (for testing.)

Now that I have switched to relaying it to my original server the spamassassin is no longer scanning my mail before relaying it. I also installed clamav for AV scanning.

How do I make sendmail make procmal make spamassassin and clamav scan my email BEFORE sending it on the relay mail server?

I hope my question was clear. If not let me know and I'll try to clarify.

you may want to try 'amavisd-new' to manage your spam/virius scanning. I can't help you much as use postfix here.

Well I read & read & read some more and pieced together enough from sources to come up with a working solution.

I'll post details tonight when I am home if anyone would like to know what I did and perhaps debate if there may be a better way.
