OfflineIMAP and SpamAssassin?

Dear all,

I have only recently noticed that using OfflineIMAP (unlike something 
like fetchmail) seems to circumvent things like SpamAssassin and ClamAV 
scans. Is there a simple way of making emails synced with OfflineIMAP 
get processed by such filters? I'm using an IMAP<>IMAP sync with the 
last old maintainer release (6.2.0) of offlineimap.

This may seem an odd request, but my local server (to which I sync mail 
for about 8 users for speedy in-office use) is totally under my control, 
whilst my "real" internet-facing mailserver is on a shared hosting plan 
and I have less control over that - and thus don't have SA and ClamAV 
etc set up there.

Many thanks!
