That I know. Though since it is using a mysql database of users, I
COULD add a column designating this. But it would be difficult to
maintain. Better perhaps for dovecot NOT to be so nice to move the
messages and leave that to the client.

Well ***SPAM*** is added to the subject. And it seems that dovecot is
being really nice to act on that and move it. Now I have to remember
what I did to configure this and unconfigure this. I did much of the
work long ago, set it aside, built a new box,,, So now I am learning
what I did.

I only have 12 users. Small time, I know. And some have 1000 flagged
messages per day.
