Well, as I don't use it that way, I'm not the right person to answer your

Then, file /etc/procmailrc would simply have this rule:
That triggers spamassassin; it doesn't move nor delete anything, but
depending on its configuration adds a header, modifies the header or adds

That depends on what each user wants. The above rule will add a header
(X-Spam-Status: Yes) that has to be checked. How? Well it can be done by

filtering capacity of whatever program they use.
Or, they can simply create their own ~/.procmailrc file, containing this
at the beginning:
* ^X-Spam-Status: Yes
Or something similar.
