Have you tried this? I think you're jumping to conclusions by saying:

> directly is with the following folder header
I can't see why sa-learn should treat the "magic" first message
specially. It's just a standard email message that happens to have
an X-IMAP header that uw-imapd's (or maybe its cclient library) uses.
Make the following mboxes:
o one with only the "special" mesage
o one with only a normal message
o one with only two normal messages
o one with both special and normal
Run them all through sa-learn --mbox and post your results.
