If you're using IMAP, you don't need to forward. With the right setup 
you only have to move messages around from/to the IMAP server Spam folder.

If you're using POP, then usually that means forwarding messages. But 
there are already some plugins/extensions that provide simple Spam/Not 
Spam buttons, both for M$ Outlook and Thunderbird.

Never the less, it would be a nice idea, but i think you're forgetting 
the technicalities.  I assume that such http submission would be 
authenticated. Do you want to nag your users constantly with 
authentication popups, and windows opening, so they can retrain?

Two possibilities for Outlook & Thunderbird are discussed here, on the 
last paragraph.
