For providers that do spam filtering, obviously yes.  For others, I
first fetch emails on a server using fetchmail/spamassassin, then
expose these emails using dovecot on the server.

Sorry I wasn't clear.

I have

1. an address from my internet provider
2. an address from my own remote server

multiple addresses are collected on 2 (using fetchmail/spamassassin)
and dovecot is running on this remote server.

I use maildir for both 1 and 2 on my local machine, sync'ing all
mails with mbsync.

I guess so, yes.

You're welcome!

PS: I secretly love anything related to emails, this is fascinating.
