Unfortunately, Sonic users don't have the capability to train Spamassassin.
Sonic continues to work on a system that will scale to many thousands of
users, but in the mean time, they've fallen behind in the spam munitions
war.  They've wisely decided that a shared bayesion database for all

I finally got irritated enough to forward my sonic email to a server under my
control.  I should have done that a long time ago!
