I'd like to train my Spam Assassin with some spam that it's missed, however I'm confused. With sa-learn I could target:

  • raw message
  • text-message (body)
  • html (body)

What one of those options is this best. I'd like to pull the message right out of my E-mail box. Is it of any concern if the raw-message has in the header's destination my e-mail address? Will that perhaps confuse its ability to learn spam from ham?

Any other suggestions about sa-learning

I use the raw message. There's no need to trim the messages before running sa-learn.

An advantage of using the raw message is that sa-learn can also process the headers, which may be more useful than the body itself. –  John Gardeniers Jul 29 '12 at 0:44
    
As long as you give it separate --ham and --spam runs, it's all good. –  Avery Payne Jul 3 at 20:40
