The easiest thing is to let MailScanner add text to the subject line,
and write a rule.  It won't update the IMF in Exchange or anything, but
it's easy to shunt things off to a folder.

An Outlook add in that I've been pretty happy with is called SpamBayes
( which can help Outlook deal with the
little that slips through MailScanner.  May or may not be a good fit for
your site.
