If your Spamassassin is properly adding a header showing the Spam 'score' 
as a row of asterisks, then you can check for that header in procmail and 
deliver accordingly. I would suggest, to avoid having a notice for every 
piece of spam, try instead to have a cron job that checks the spam folder 
for *new* mail, once nightly, and sends a single message to the user. Of 
course, if the user is always getting spam, then that notice gets ignored 
pretty quickly, so you may want to decide whether it is worth the trouble.
