I believe you can configure milter-spamc to get user preferences from an 
SQL database.  However, when doing so milter-spamc passes just the local 
part of the recipient email address to spamc, not the entire recipient 
email address.  This is probably fine for most people.  However if you 
are wanting to run SpamAssassin on messages as they pass through your 
system, as in a spam filtering mail relay, you have more problems 
getting user settings b/c there is not the full email address.  I have 
started using spamass-milter for this reason.  Either milter-spamc or 
spamass-milter should work just fine for an individual receiving company.

If you are pulling user preferences from an SQL database, you could have 
multiple scanning nodes pull from a central repository with out a problem.

Is this what you are wanting?
