I deal with that by running sa-learn cron scripts on specific 
thunderbird folders once a week.  The system runs exim, spamassassin, & 
dovecot.  The odd thing still gets through, but between spamassassin and 
thunderbird I actually see (that is, they show up in the Inbox) maybe 3 
or 4 a week and 2 or 3 false positives end up in Junk, usually from 
hotmail or yahoo accounts.  The system receives between about 1,000 and 
3,000 attempted emails a day, so that's not bad.  This is just for me, 
so I don't know about using variables in the scripts (%u, I mean).  I 
should think you'd need to identify ham at the same time.
