I have a milter (MIMEDefang) filtering out the worst spam (>10 points) at
the MTA submission. I then run SA from /etc/procmailrc to tag anything over
5 with a subject line prefix that includes the score. My personal
.procmailrc filters the spam into a separate folder. (Each mailing list
also gets its own folder, so I can quickly read the lists in the order I'm
interested in.) Finally, my client (Cyrusoft Mulberry) is configured to
display only unseen messages in the spam folder, sorted by subject line
(and hence by spam score), so that the most likely false positives will be
at the top of the list. I quickly check for any FP's and then mark the
folder seen. Any FP's are copied to a FP folder, and a nightly cron job
runs sa-learn to re-train those messages as ham. Meanwhile any spam that
evades SA is moved to an Uncaught folder, and the same cron job retrains
those messages as spam.
