It seems like a slick way to do it but I know many of my users wont want that kind of footer floating in all their emails.

Maybe it is possible to do something on the exchange side. Maybe (if possible), the following:

1. Public folder on exchange shared out to all users
2. Exchange bounces (without changing) the message to spamtrap address at my gateway
3. spamtrapaddress is aliased to pipe to sa-learn for spam training

I only wish i didnt  now need to go get help trying to figure out the resend/bounce/unaltered message from a public folder via exchange transport rules

I think I have just answered my one question which is that I cant just have a straight forward go to a spam learn as it would probably learn that all forwarded messages are spam as well..

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.
