the question here is whether results from sa-learn running over other
(e.g. outlook) formats are useful when processing mbox format.

if they are in some propietary binary format, they are apparently not
useful.

If they are converted back to mailbox format, they are quite useful,
although some information may be lost - outlook kind of "sanitizes" the
mail, in which case many details helping to trace spam are lost.

The best is, to catch mail before it hits microsoft clients or servers.
