how to train MailCleaner filter from Outlook (with Exchange Server)

If I am correct, MailCleaner uses SpamAssassin to filter email.

If I am correct again, SpamAssassin can "learn" better which emails are false negatives (permitted spam) and false positives (blocked legitimate email) based on user behavior (in other words what they mark as Junk that was missed by the filter, and what they pull out of the Junk that was incorrectly caught by the filter).

If all my users are using Outlook on an Exchange Backend, how can I get that information from Outlook to MailCleaner?

IIRC, we had to set up a mail enabled public folder and get our users to drag & drop into it. This was then exported to a mbx file and used to train the filters. It's a PITA.

is there any hope of a more elegant solution being developed that can integrate directly with the user's behavior in Outlook?
