I agree totally about adding the visual header line; however, what 
about  quick icon or changing of color in the message list?  Personally 
I like looking at a message that's not spam, or deleting it quickly.  
Just so there's no chance a silent return receipt is sent, or images 
aren't downloaded thus proving your address is real.

I was just suggesting a different color for the message list (like pink 
or orange) that is out of the norm so people can see quickly that the 
message *might* be SPAM.
