Spamassassin reports

How about forwarding a copy of SPAM to another address so that it can be reported?  I know it would be easy to add to the spamforkandtest routine to have SA report it automatically but that would report false positives to Razor or DCC.  Currently I have it save a copy of WHOLEMESSAGE with the full SA report in a spam queue directory and then just cat all the files to single mail file so that I can delete any false positives and adjust scoring rules and then report the rest.  It's no biggy if I continue doing this but it'd be nice not having to add such modifications when Mailscanner is updated.
Thanks for the spam.actions function, works great but I was wondering if you could modify it a bit so that a different score could be used for queuing or deleting.  Example:  If SA tags it at a score of 5, have MA queue/delete at a score of 10.  I added a config setting for MaxSpam hits and thru in a 'if' test in the HandleSpam routine.  The higher the score the less likely it's a false positive and is safer to dump while still tagging the questionable ones.

        Yes, one or two people have asked for that. In the next release I hope...
