A (somewhat belated) additional note:

There's a bug in the 1.0.x releases that means that although you can change
the classification names (e.g. "spam" to "Qedko421805AQ"), the
notate_subject and notate_to options will fail to work correctly.  This will
be fixed in the first 1.1 release (i.e. 1.1a1), and IIRC is already fixed in
CVS, if you run from source.

However, if you include the trailing comma, and use notate_to rather than
notate_subject, problems should be rare (at least, I don't recall ever
seeing an email address with a comma, let alone one with 'spam,' in it).
