I have an address which is aliased to a pipe as follows

SpamReport: "|/usr/bin/spamc -u postfix -L spam || true"

but I don't publicise it for exactly the above reason. One needs a MUA
that can redirect/resend/bounce the message without change, and I don't
trust my users to have that ability or to use it correctly if they do.

I have thought about it some, and I think you need to archive all mail
and then add a footer something like

  Help train the spam filter

  Report this as Spam

  Report this as Ham

Where those 'reports' are links that will notify some process that
this message's queue ID is spam or ham, and have that process call
spamc or sa-learn.
