If you use the '-p' option, as in "bogofilter -p", each message's
headers will include a line like:

X-Bogosity: Yes, tests=bogofilter, spamicity=1.000000, version=0.92.2
X-Bogosity: Unsure, tests=bogofilter, spamicity=0.500000, version=0.92.2
X-Bogosity: No, tests=bogofilter, spamicity=0.000000, version=0.92.2

Most email clients can filter these, for example to "Mail-Spam",
"Mail-Unsure", etc.  Having done that filtering, the proper registration
flags are easy to determine.
