Maybe its me...but I don't recall seeing a 'this is spam button' for Postini. I know there is an email you can report spam to, but I doubt there is an automated process for it. I have had great success with Postini thus far and have used them for a few years.

I accuse postini of having exactly this vulnerabillity - that one user 
classing mail as spam automatically means it marks all other mail from 
that user to everyone else.  There really outta be some transparency 
here so that everyone understands the how and the why of 'spam'
