Yes, looking at my mails, there is no sign of any spam
filter, only a virus check.

Regarding the legal rules - there is exactly one sane way: the
mailserver has to _reject_ mails at the front door (instead of
accepting and then maybe tagging them).

Sane maybe, but very difficult. The problem is analysing the mail
whilst keeping the smtp session open. The analysis can easily take
10-15seconds or more.

Once you accept a mail, you are legally "lost". The sender has a
confirmation that the mail was accepted, and of course you are not
allowed to delete it. The only remaining option is to deliver it to
the recipient. Tagging is possible, but typical users never look into
their spam folder, so tagging and moving to the spam folder is not too
different from deleting the mail.

Seeing as you mentioned the word "legal", it really is completely
different. The user received the mail, and filed it based on his/her
own rules.
