Will spamassassin process messages that are being forwarded to a different domain? ie there is no POP or IMAP account set up on this box and a user may not 'exist' for this email address.

Go on, have a guess
IIRC, SpamAssassin will not be run on forwarded email as forwarders are processed before SA scanning. If you used a different scanning method (such as MailScanner) then it would.
