Manual Whitelist

Firstly my apologies if this is an FAQ but I could not find a suitable answer.

I have a MailScanner installation running spamassassin. I have set my non-spam scores quite low and all is looking good.

I redirect all low scoring spam to a mailbox called "spam" and check this manually. All false positives are then copied manually by
me to a mailbox called "ham" and every night I run a cron job as follows:-

/usr/bin/sa-learn --ham --mbox /var/spool/mail/ham

This does not seem to be working though and I think it is because I am not running this job as the root user. 

Is it possible for me to have a non-root script that will run AND also auto-whitelist any "from" address in the ham mailbox
