Doesn't this defeat the purpose of trying to stop people from having to
be annoyed by spam?  With your request, a person will get a message
(that they can filter) that tells them of quarantined spam, which seems
just as annoying as getting the spam in the first place.  Basically, you
want to substitute spam for

If you modify the subjet to add {Spam?}, they can filter it anyway.
Letting them filter on something in the subject, would save them from
having to open the email, read who it is from (which should also be
displayed in their "spam" email folder), and then click a link.

Must be a VP requesting your "feature."
