Like "Status: RO" in Header? Hmm. I tried setting all Messages in my 
INBOX as read, but grepping for this "grep '^Status:' /vat/mail/adam" 
only returned "Status: RO".

Of course it it, also on wire: I meant the "SPAM-Priority-Flags" ;-). 
Formerly, at least, I often could identify Spam just by checking for 
this flags, beeing either "high", or "low" for spam but never used for 
normal mail. :-)

How this flags are called "officially"?

And (how) can I prevent dovecot from doing so?
