We’ll show you a custom solution for moving spam to a separate folder and adding new spam signatures to SpamAssassin.

Many email readers offer built-in spam filtering. These mail clients also provide a means for teaching the spam filter new spam signatures. To teach a signature, customers tag an unsolicited message as spam, or move the spam message into a separate folder.

Perl, the Maildrop delivery agent, and SpamAssassin.
