I've been thinking about this too. Suppose you had a company with 100 employees.

If you pick 5 people and use their combined preferences to flag messages as 
ham/spam, would that be workable?

So, you would just flag a message, still send it through and leave it to the user's mua to 
dispose of as it wishes.

Perhaps some kind of 'voting scheme' could be used (rather than a simple spam score 

I don't have enough people here to try this with, but I'd like to experiment with the idea.
