I'm convinced this is a bad idea, but I'll throw it in
anyway, just in case it sparks better ones:

Munge the reply-to address on spam to dump it into the
training bucket. Then, the user just replies to the
message to train on it.

Reasons it won't work:

1. You don't want to encourage people to hit "Reply"
   on spam.
2. You can't munge ham like this, and you've just
   destroyed useful info in a FP.
3. You still need a way to get the original message
   (you could do this by using an address of
   spam+<ID>@localhost and trapping all addresses of
   this form).

As I say, maybe there are some useful points somewhere
in this bad idea...


PS Tim, your mailer quotes long source lines *really*
   badly, making your replies very hard to read
   sometimes. Is this something you can change?
