or he can create specific users (such as user-junk) whose mail location 
points to the Junk folder...

maybe a better solution would to provide a web interface that allows 
"releasing" false positives (which would then be moved to the Inbox) and 
"confirming" spam. Users can eaisly spot junk and confirm it without 
downloading it.
