I don't like the idea of a mailuser agent which requires that you open a
spam in order to report it, and if I were using one of those agents, I
would find some other way to handle my spam. Outlook is particularly
problematic, and ideally one would 'siphon off' spam before it ever even
got into the OL 'store' form to get both 'bent' from its original
condition and also manadating opening for handling; unless some kind of
3rd party gymnastics are performed. I think if I were going to bring a
3rd party into OL's spamhandling, I would grab the spamitems before OL
I only have personal experience with Outlook Express, which is quite
popular regardless of demerits, which doesn't have such a requirement to
open a spam to webparse or email. I'm also familiar with some
workarounds for a number of mailuser agents, so that if I were 'partial'
to one of those which didn't enable me to 'handle' spam 'examining' and
submitting to a parser or abuse desk without opening, then I would use a
workaround so that I could do it the way I wanted and see raw message
source without opening.
In the case of Eudora, because it doesn't facilitate email submissions,
some people 'integrate' their Eudora spamfolders into OE by importing
kibitzer, not SC admin
