1. Yes, but it might not.
What it does depends on how sendmail/postfix has been configured.
Perhaps, just perhaps, you've tried setting up spam/av checking and
got it wrong under some fringe condition. Perhaps you've got some
alias you weren't aware of. Perhaps there's some other fringe
error. After all, Postfix is very very complex!
2. The spam/av processing can be done within procmail so why not
eliminate the sendmail/postfix step and have fetchmail hand off
to local procmail directly?
What this boils down to is this:
Do you have a good reason to apply the processing that can
*only* be carried out by sendmail/procmail in this path?
I poured over this and could not find any.
Please note: I'm not saying "Postfix is not needed" in any universal
sense. I said "in this path".
I have postfix and by fetchmail handing to postfix I get *all* mail logged
in /var/log/mail, ie: not just fetchmail's and procmail's logs.
It was a *conscious* decision :^).
