For  a small  number  of accounts  this  will work  just  fine. I  setup
something similar on my server. One thing to think about is... when they
drag a message  into ham (i.e. one that has  been misclassified as spam)
they probably want to keep the message so you might want to redeposit it
into the inbox.
