Actually, there's a third way and it's what we do (but difficult to set
up with pure SpamAssassin.)

We tokenize inbound messages and store the tokens on the server.  In
each message, we add links for doing training.  When you click on a
training link, the system trains the message based on the tokens
stored on the server.  In that way, you are training using exactly the
tokens that the Bayes code saw.
