My own experience with various MTA implementations is that spam, virus, and 
other content evaluation is all part of the intake step, before it hits a queue 
where prolonged delay is likely.  That's why this is giving me quite a bit of 
Shoveling the message off to another service for evaluation is indeed rare among stand-alone MTAs, but pretty common in cloud-based implementations, especially those that use a forest of single-purpose blades. There are frontends to SpamAssassin that support this as well.
