I've setup a spam user to train the bayesian engine in SpamAssassin 2.53 (using
the script on the MailScanner FAQ).  If someone forwards messages to this user
from a mailer like Mozilla or Outlook, the header will all be changed and it
will have their signature etc in the message.  Will this cause problems with
sa-learn?  If so, how can non-techie users send misidentified messages to this
user? (I can use the bounce feature in Mutt to do this).
