kmail is very slow at starting

I've an idea I have set up spamassassin wrongly on my desktop,
as there is now a long delay when I start my mail-reader 
(kmail under Fedora 5) -
kmail reports that it is "initialising",
and then the indicator at the bottom of the page
goes slowly from 0% to 100%.

I get mail from 2 sources:
uucp mail arrives in /var/spool/mail/<user>
and POP3 mail from gmail and other places.

I've never been clear how procmail and spams/spamd actually work -
in particular where exactly they intercept mail.

At the end of my .procmailrc I have

# SpamAssassin our way through
| spamc

In the kmail settings all my mail sources are set to be checked regularly -
at intervals of 5-30 minutes,
but it seems as though this does not have the desired effect,
or maybe it only has an effect while kmail is running?

I see the following spam-related programs are running on my desktop:
[tim alfred ~]$ ps aux | grep spam
