It will detect a SpamAssassin and ClamAV installation and invoke it 
site-wide, rejecting virii and extreme spam before it gets to the 
delivery agent (eg. procmail), quarantining it for administrative review 
and sending a quarantine notification to the recipient.


Reading around, it looks like Postfix supports milters and people have
