With one huge difference. Policyd-weight rejects the mail *before* DATA,
so the MTA never has to handle the mail. No queueing, no attempted
deliveries, etc., etc.

I also use spamassassin, and, as you know if you use it, you have to watch
the scoring very closely to not lose legitimate email. Policyd simply
eliminates all the drek that comes from forging, domain hijacking and mta
hijacking. What's left is easy for sa to handle (as well as the poor
postmaster.)
