I've seen posts from people who are using SpamBayes on a shared server
for several users, and the users all forward mail to be trained through
the same smtpproxy instance. This would require access from remote
machines other than localhost.
I personally liked the idea of adding the "remote connections" option to
SMTP proxy as well as the proxy UI, requiring users to explicitly list
any remote systems that they want to allow to use the SMTP proxy.
