Here's how you could possibly add a magic-header to thunderbird:

1. Download this:

2. Locate your thunderbird custom training data file using this:
OR start with a new file.

3. Run the jar file and open the training.dat file, manually add the 
tokens / header (say X-Spam-Status=spam and X-Spam-Status=ham for bad 
and good tokens respectively) that you want to be detected as Junk / 

4. Test it out pretty well

5. Use some distribution system at your facility to use this as the 
starter training data for all thunderbird users.

6. Ask management for a raise.. and send me and Julian some of it.

Let us know how it works out anyways.
