When this was suggested I took a look at this and did base v0.0 of the
filter I've put together on isbg.  There's just about nothing from it
there now (although there is an acknowledgement).

I'll commit the imap filter this afternoon, I think, as unfinished as it
is, so that people can start commenting on it.

This certainly can be done.  And for a 30 second solution, you could use
this, plus the smtpproxy to train, and that would be that.  I think that
ideally, however, we'll need something ourselves so that we can work the
training (and whatever else) in.
