Remote SpamAssassin processor?

    I have several cPanel servers and would like to reduce load on them by having a dedicated server handle the SpamAssassin processing.

    I have the remote SpamAssassin server setup and configured Exim to use it by specifying the following in exim.conf:

    spamd_address = $IP 783

    exim seems to pass off SA requests fine but I am running into one problem. User defined SA preferences (homedir/.spamassassin/user_prefs) seems to be ignored.

    For example, if I set the score to 2 or blacklist an e-mail address these options appear to be bypassed.

    Is there any way that I can pass off spam processing to an external SA server and still have the user defined preferences in homedir/.spamassassin/user_prefs acknowledged?
