Another useful trick is to configure spamassassin to put the score in
the Subject field of spam mails[1], and then configure mutt to order mails
by subject in your spam mailbox. Then relatively low scoring mails sort
to the top of the mailbox where you're more likely to see them before
the D key is depressed. (Pity that mutt is not configurable to sort
directly on the X-Spam-Status header.)
