My email provider anti-spam system adds a tag before the subject of emails when it detects spam or viruses.

It looks like *** PROBABLY SPAM *** What a night we had !

It's not very accurate and results in many false positive tags.

I archive some emails (like the one in the example) and these tags look dirty.

Do you know a way to get rid of them occasionally, without disabling the filter on the server ?

Thank you,

Not directly, but you can download the messages, process them, and upload them back to IMAP folders. Any good IMAP client will let you do that.

Which imap client? I do not know anyone which is able to process messages without sending them again. Thanks. – Toc Nov 5 '10 at 8:32
@Toc: "that" meaning "download the messages, process them, and upload them back". – grawity Nov 5 '10 at 21:37
