Actually, cutting spam at the smtp level means rejecting the mail
from any time after the "mail From" line, to after the end of the
"data" portion of the message. Spam rejected at the smtp level doesn't
even make it into the delivery queue, let alone into any folders.

As for calling sendmail the leader in mail delivery, by looking at

I am under the impression that qmail seems to be the leader in mail
delivery, and I have never seen the same claims that are being made
about qmail being also made about sendmail. Then again, I haven't
exactly searched the web for such claims regarding sendmail either.
