For my own personal email, I use the python spambayes module like this:
spam marked by SpamAssassin and/or junkfilter gets into a junkmail
folder and every few hours, a cronjob processes this folder and "trains" the
spambayes database so it "learns" what is spam and what isn't.
Additionally, a procmail recipe checks for these spam headers the next
time mail comes in. It works quite well, even for those "clever words".
You may want to have a look at
I haven't used the SpamAssassin bayes feature yet to achieve something
like this globally.
