sa-learn (Slightly OT)

OK, I'll search through to try and find some scripts _but_
to the original Qs:
Did trying to sa-learn those outlook files put garbage into my mailscanner?
Should I tell it to un-learn those messages?
How much of a header is used for sa-learn?

The exchange headers have no resemblance to real headers.  It's files
are tightly incomprehensible binary.  As I'm writing this, I
remembered I _can_ go to the options menu in outlook and get the real
headers, then re-stitch those back to the text of the message.
Ouch ;)  Silly exchange.  Silly outlook.

Given the age of the exchange server, I'm unsure as to whether I can
enable imap on it safely (it's under fairly heavy use, and it's
exchange 5.5.)  I'm linux/unix centric, but I do recall something
about imap introducing severe instability for exchange servers of some
