SpamBayes is a message classifier. Once it has classified the message as Ham/Suspect/Spam its job is done.

No. There's no practical way of achieving anything. Most spam has falsified reply/from etc headers and most replies would just bounce, causing even more traffic.

At least it's not cluttering your inbox any more....
