Integrating spam detection into mailman is actually quite easy- once
your MTA is configured for it. That is an MTA issue, not a mailman
issue. (If you'd like an analogy, this seems akin to complaining to
the gas station that your car's gas tank has to be filled from
underneath, and you'd like them to fix it)

And to be fair, I consider most of the other comments constructive; it
is often better/easier to fix a policy problem than to fix the way
that mailman works. In all fairness, your comment about your years of
experience was the first rude thing. It doesn't really do to ask for
help and then beat us over the head with your qualifications because
you don't want to hear the particular suggestions. When you ask for
help, you are throwing yourselves on our mercy, as it were- any pride
you may have should be long out the window.
