Thanks a lot for that quick and good help. I'm not aware how i could
correct that wiki and moreover,not being an expert i'm shy and would let
that do to more experienced people ;)

Anyway, just to my understanding: Do you mean running the personalised
action files means i refer to an in some way "outside" running
spamassassin process while the plugin would be activated first in the
settings, obviously, and then in with the menu buttons (learn as spam
resp. learn as ham)? For what it's worth: That menu buttons seem to me
to not have any influence; tried it either with bogo or with
spamassassin but seemed to make not at all a difference.

I'll go to learn from the links you pointed me to for the fowarding
issue. In this moment, i'm completely unsure what mailer i should go to
use as default ... (Btw, german isn't a problem at all, here ;) )

In any case, i'll try out and will report.

Thanks again.
