Not if you sanitize, call SA to score, and then discard based on
score, somewhere upstream of this.

Here's how I have my chain set up:
  /etc/procmailrc:  SA -> Discard score 10+ -> Sanitize

The user's .procmailrc is processed after spam filtering and
sanitizing, so vacation would never see spams or attack messages.

  The difference is that Unix has had thirty years of technical
  types demanding basic functionality of it. And the Macintosh has
  had fifteen years of interface fascist users shaping its progress.
  Windows has the hairpin turns of the Microsoft marketing machine
  and that's all.                                    -- Red Drag Diva
