I added the -N and -S as above to see if it would improve the percentage
of junk mails classified as junk.  I only see an occasional email that
is wrongly classified as junk so needs to be reclassified as not junk.
As of today, none of the junk mails were classified as junk.  I don't
see anywhere to use a different command for classifying vs
reclassifying. Did you set this up someway to only use the modified
commands for reclassifying?
