Not that this is relevant to qalam, but the Verizon Yahoo spam filter (which dates back to July 06) does indeed work that way, but qalam is in my address book, so it won't send anything sent from there to the spam file.

If your filter is old. Now, most spam filters are designed on the
assumption that the address in the headers is phony; I gather that they
look for words that are more likely to appear in spam than otherwise --
and "otherwise" includes all the messages from qalam that you have *not*
marked as spam.
