First, no.. Eudora's redirect builds a new set of headers. Not gonna work.
You need the original message headers, since SA's bayes engine learns
header tokens as well as body text tokens.

Also see my previous post in this thread. Eudora destroys part of the body
of any multipart email when it receives it.

That portion is gone and is unrecoverable, so it doesn't matter how you
redirect, forward, or whatever, important parts of the mail (from a bayes
perspective) are just plain gone. Most spam is multipart/alternative type
mail, and won't be usable for learning.
