The latter.

There's an open feature request for this:

[ 744558 ] Add "Delete As Spam" button to Outlook inspector w

However, it was opened in May 2003 and hasn't been added yet...it's likely
that someone will get to it at some point, but I don't know when.

Feel free to add comments to the tracker linked above indicating that you
agree that this would be a good feature to have.  More "me too"'s will
increase the chance that someone will choose to implement it.


Please always include the list (spambayes at python.org) in your replies
