That's great, but wouldn't that still try to process the SPAM through the
vacation program?  I'm not a procmail expert, but I don't see any logic in
your example, telling procmail not to processs the file if it is SPAM.

These are the last two recipes in my .procmailrc files:

:0fw: spamassassin.lock
* < 256000
| spamassassin


Basically runs spamassassin, then sends the file to a tmp directory if it
is SPAM.  If I simply add your example, it will still process the file
through vacation regardless of if it is SPAM or not.  As far as I can
tell, anyhow.
