Check the SA wiki for "IntegradedInMta"
http://wiki.apache.org/spamassassin/IntegratedInMta

There are multiple sendmail 'milters' (EG spamas-milter, milterassassin)
which will do that, other kinds of more exotic integration systems
(EG MIMEDefang, amavis2, etc).

General advantages: can filter all mail passing thru your system not just
locally delivered messages, only need to call once per message not per
recipient, can do SMTP rejects of high-scoring spam, etc

General disadvantage: harder to do per-user customization of rules etc.
