Can you not filter on the number of asterisks in the X-Spam-Level
header field in TBird?

I don't use TBird but, as an example of what I mean, I have the
following in my Procmail (~/.procmailrc) config:

	:0:
	* ^X-Spam-Level: \*\*\*\*\*\*\*\*\*\*
	spam/caught
	:0:
	* ^X-Spam-Level: \*\*\*\*\*
	spam/probably
	:0:
	* ^X-Spam-Level: \*
	spam/possibly
