Ok, thanks for answer.

Every user's mailbox has a directory called Spam and Ham. I scan this
two folders by a script to learn my spamassassin database.
This script does not scan folders like spam, ham, junk-email etc.
But some users have such folders in their mailbox so spamassassin does
not learn from these folders.

My aim is to force users to use the folders Spam and Ham and not other
folders for spam or ham messages.
