[Spambayes] weighting question

is there currently a way to weight the smtp envelope information (in particular, 'mail from') independently from the payload of the message? the reason i ask is that if someone that i work with forwards an obvious spam note to me with little preamble (e.g. 'note the use of underscores') the remaining content of the message forces it right into the spam bucket. i have two other cases where retraining doesn't seem to be improving false positives as well. 

thanks

p.s. yes, i know that 'mail from' isn't a reliable authentication assertion. :o)
