Because this is my home network (wife kids, general use etc) I have all

The forwarded message however passes back through the global procmailrc
file, and, in short, gets passed back through SA.
I'd suggest that you forward to an MTA alias which simply deposits the
message into a mailbox file. That alias _could_ invoke a procmail process
(if you put the procmail recipe in /etc/procmailrcs/ you can set it to be
owned by whatever user you want the resulting mailbox to be owned by).
Or, add some logic to your /etc/procmailrc:
# this would SKIP your SA stuff if the message was being delivered to your
# administrative userid *AND* already posessed an SA header.
* ! LOGNAME ?? ^^youruserid^^
* ! ^some_spam_assassin_header
# do your SA stuff
Or, take things flagged as spam (in your global procmailrc) and right then
and there, deliver them into an archive for your review instead of to the
original recipient. Much less overhead than forwarding it around.
