      This will not solve your problem, but it is something to think
about: I only tag spam as such, and only in the header. What I then do
is use dovecot's sieve to move the emails marked as spam to the spam
folder. Then users can decide if the spam-marked email is indeed spam.
If not, they can move it out of that folder. In any case, they do not
lose any email (I can always purge spam that is more than X days old
if disk space becomes an issue) but their Inbox still looks rather

Now, I can have a specific sieve scripts that only run for specific
users. So I can handle very specific cases as needed.
