I am quite happy with the way MailScanner modifies the subject line. It
is quite easy to create a rule in Outlook which moves tagged mails to
deleted items :)

I don't see the need to have an inline warning, I usually don't get any
legitimate porn or nigerian scam mails myself which makes them easy to
spot :)
