I would like to be able to use the Blacklisted flag that the Domino server marks emails with to be accessible from a mail rule.  As such (unless I'm being a total idiot, which is possible), I am unable to push my potential false-positives into the Junk folder unless I'm using an external tool which can inject *SPAM* or some such thing into the subject which I can then create a rule around. 
Using the blacklist flag, I should be able to invisibly mark an email as Junk, have it get pushed into the Junk folder, and then if it's a false positive, remove from my Junk folder and add to my personal whitelist at the click of a button.  Why that isn't possible, I don't know.  But I've spent a lot of time on the phone with Lotus Support only to be told that this is not what the flag is supposed to be for.

Unless I'm mistaken, I just saw that 15 minutes ago in the mail rules on my Domino 8.0 server.

Have you successfully implemented it? Lotus Support could not help me in getting it to actually route flagged emails. If it's an implementation issue on my end then I'll withdraw the idea and go to the forums. My understanding is that it currently cannot be done.

This should work out of the box, create a mail rule with condition "When blacklist tag contains . move to folder ($JunkMail)". The dot in the blacklist tag is the trick as you can not test for a condition "is not empty".
