Want to add a spamassassin proxy server to an existing postfix email system.

I have an older Redhat 7.2 postfix/cyrus email server. I went to add spamassassin 3.0 and there were too many things that had to be upgraded.  Instead of messing with a stable server, I want to add spamassassin to separate pc and using back end ports build a proxy to have all email routed through a port out to the proxy and then back to the server.  Can this be done?

no problem.  Amavisd-new can do that.  You just set it up to accept on a certain port (which postfix needs to be configured to do), then after it does its spam/virus filter thing you have it send back to postfix (again a configuration in the master.cf file is needed)
