Put it in The daemon gets started from that, and it
communicates to sendmail via a socket.  They don't even have to be on

Nowhere.  Instead of returning a "250 Message accepted for delivery",
sendmail returns "550 5.7.1 Blocked by SpamAssassin".  If the sending
process was also an MTA, it will generate a bounce message.
