Subject: Server side Email Tools for Clients

Now that I have what so far appears to be a nicely configured
MailScanner/MailWatch system running, I'd like to work on the delivery
areas for clients.

First, I'm running CentOS 5.x and sendmail in a pretty standard setup up
until the installation of MailScanner.

I would like to be able to accomplish four things.

I would like to have email delivered to a spam box or two for each
client. At present I'm doing this with procmail rules.

I would like to have old spam automatically removed from these boxes. At
present I'm running a couple of custom scripts which do this.

I would like to send reports to clients which reminds them about the
stored spam and perhaps even provides the subject lines from those
emails, maybe even sorted with lowest scores at the top, so they are
reminded that they might have ham which wasn't received. At present I
have no method of doing this.

I would like to provide a user interface so that they can move email
from spam to ham and ham to spam for training. At present I have no
method for doing this.

Does anyone have a suggestion for any program which might be able to
accomplish this? As always, we are dealing with end users, so KISS is
important and flexibility as for instance some might not want to receive
reports... or might not want their mail sorted at all.

I hope this isn't too 'off topic' for this list. But it does seem to be
the next step. Alternatively, perhaps a link to where I should look
would be great.
