You can download this script at  Before running the script,
open it and change $rootdir to point to whichever directory contains
your archive.  I've been too busy to change it so that it reads an
argument from the command line.

Please be warned before using this that it simply uses SpamAssassin to
classify the mail before feeding it into sa-learn, so if SpamAssassin is
already misclassifying them, it will do the same through this script.
