I used to do this, and have procmail do crude spam filtering.  
I eventually took it out of the loop because mail spool was not a 
reliable concept in my (relatively highly distributed) world.  I'm 
curious if it gives any benefits today; I would expect machines
without working mail spools to be even more common, but I 
haven't looked in forever.
