I will check that out.

At home, I do postfix=>maildrop=>COurier IMAPd. (I am my own MX) And then
read using mutt or Evolution or Outlook (depending on which machine I am
on), all via IMAP.

My postfix calls amavisd-new, which daemonizes and runs the SA perl
modules directly, so I am actually never running SA; everything is handled
by amavisd-new (as well as virus-scanning via clamd).

I had completely forgotten I was using this as a .sig. :-)
