thats exactly what im doing right now. user can specify a threshold in
their sieve filter (or in a Outlook Rule, or ...) and decide what to do
with a mail considered as spam (by a nonindividual serverside rule
set!). my point is, that I like to have the possibilty for users to take
influence on the decision what is considerd spam.
user1 at example.com: like to have buy at now.com on the whitelist (never
treaten as spam)
user2 at example.com: like to have buy at now.com on the blacklist
now the following email arrive:
From: buy at now.com
To: user1 at example.com, user2 at example.com
got it ?
