Try this script; we use it to pull the messages from junkmail and
goodmail folders on the Exchange and feed the messages to sa-learn like


SERVER=<fill in your server name / IP here>
USER=<spam checking user>




/usr/sbin/folderdump --host $SERVER --user $USER --pass $PASS --folder
Public\ Folders/$JUNK --dir $SPAM
/usr/sbin/folderdump --host $SERVER --user $USER --pass $PASS --folder
Public\ Folders/$GOOD --dir $NOTSPAM

date >> $LOGFILE

$SALEARN --prefs-file=$PREFS --spam $SPAM >> $LOGFILE 2>&1
rm -f $SPAM/*
$SALEARN --prefs-file=$PREFS --ham $NOTSPAM >> $LOGFILE 2>&1
rm -f $NOTSPAM/*

Make sure that the spam checking user has read access to the public
folders. You may want to restrict its write/delete access to the
junkmail folder only, otherwise a user may accidentally drag and drop a
valuable message on goodmail, rather than Ctrl+Drag and drop.

Okay, I'll wait to see what others have to say then.

Thanks.  :-D
