All mail is tagged by SA. It adds a set of headers to each message. The
values in those headers say whether the message was classified as ham or
spam. What you, or your user's MUA, decides to do with a message after
its been classified by SA is up to you and/or your users.
Postfix passes messages to the next MTA it is for non-local users.
Messages for local users sd put on the user's delivery queue, which is
located in /var/spool/mail on RedHat Linuxes: both spam and ham is put
there unless you've introduced a spam filter of reconfigured Postfix to
do something else with it.
In my system, user logins to the server have direct access to messages
via their MUA, e.g. Evolution, mail or mutt. Users who are elsewhere
collect mail from the server via Dovecot, using POP3, POP3S or IMMAP

Postfix uses mbox format mailboxes by default.
