Each of these I do not know. Personally I use SA in daemon mode on a
Debian box to do SMTP-time filtering prior to reading it in Thunderbird
or Squirrelmail. Client-use, on-demand filtering on Ubuntu via
Evolution is about as far from my configuration as you can get. I just
know that it is possible.

This is because spamd is loaded as a daemon and spamc is used to
communicate with that daemon. You're effectively cutting out the
load/init portion of spamd's run. The downside, of course, is that
spamd needs to be running all the time. Great idea for SMTP-time
filtering, not so great for on-demand, client-side filtering.
