Most, if not all, items have been named here in the past.

I would try to setup SPAM and HAM boxes where the users can drop copies
of SPAM and HAM messages. Then you can use sa-learn to set up your
bayesian database.

That way your nbayesian databsse will reflect the average of your
customers. If your customers are rather diverse you may find that you
loose some accuracy in the bayesian database.
