We are a GroupWise shop, and use subject tagging.  The users like it.  We have configured it to do SPAM:**** where the number of asterisks represents the number of hits.  The users like the visual cue. They can sort their mail by subject, select everything over say 10 *s, and delete.  We also use the Subject contains rule to move spam to folders depending on the number of *s.  Using 'contains' means configuring say 10 *s catches everything above 10 *'s as well.  Works well for us.

There seems to be no way in GroupWise 6.0 and below to do tagging on SMTP headers.  Don't know about the new version 6.5.
