BTW, I'd be happy to share my wordlist. At ≈12MB it's kinda large though. > Yes, works very well for me too.

I've defined two macros in Mutt; for training bogofilter to see a message as Ham or Spam; macro index S "<enter-command>unset wait_key\n\ <pipe-entry>bogofilter -Ns\n\ <enter-command>set wait_key\n\ <delete-message>" "requalify and delete message as spam" macro index H "<enter-command>unset wait_key\n\ <pipe-entry>bogofilter -Sn\n\ <enter-command>set wait_key\n" "requalify message as non-spam" This is for my personal database, of course. But if users can send spam to a special mailbox, it should not be too hard to run that through bogofilter as training material in a cron-job. > Then on top of that one ought to have some means of global spam filter > database in addition to per-user databases. That is possible. Look at the bogofilter FAQ.
