To make sure I understand: these two actions, "move to junk" and "move 
out of junk", are for use on the machine that has SpamSieve installed.  
On other machines that use the same IMAP server, one should use the 
"good" and "bad" folders per the SpamSieve instructions, in order to 
update SpamSieve's training rules.  Is this all correct?
