When user settings are used with milter-spamc, it assumes that the 
local-part of the mail address is the user-id and passes that, unless 
there are more than one recipient, in which case the profile of the last 
  recipient specified is used, unless the spamd-user option is 
specified, in which case that is used.

SpamAssassin handle the user profiles. If you put SpamAssassin on the 
machine where those profiles exist, then you can use an Internet socket 
instead of a unix domain socket to contact the host running spamd. That 
way you avoid having to mount the home directories for SpamAssassin.
