I found the problem. It's not the socket but the IP-handling in jails. When I 
connect to inside a jail the source-IP is not but the IP 
you assigned the jail when starting.
So I had to add "-A" to spamd to allow connections from the jail 
localhost! (the header shows now the jail does spam check)

I haven't solved that one yet. I found commented code in the /etc/rc.d/jail 
which indicates IMO the developer also had problems utilizing ln to /dev in 
jails. But I haven't found a workarround yet :(
Perhaps somebody who's very familar with devfs and jails could have a look at 
this? *please*
