if your corp privacy policy allows, i'd say copy *ALL* incoming mail
during a 24 hour period into a separate box... manually sort it, then use
it to train. then copy that DB into each user's environment, where they
can re-train it against mistakes.

apparently this type of filtering is most effective if each user decides
for them self what is and isn't spam, but you might get away with a bulk
initial training.
