As of 5.0.11 (or 5.0.12? please update this if you know...), Junk/Spam folders are zimbra-aware:

When a user in imap/outlook either A) moves an email into this folder or B)
clicks the "Junk" button when viewing the email, the extra step was not being
performed, and the message, while it was moved to the Junk/Spam folder, was NOT
queued for processing by the spam filter/trainer.

All that has changed, is that this extra step is automatically, in the
background, performed.

The following was once true for Zimbra version before 5.0.11:

IMAP/Outlook move to junk doesn't train anti-spam - It seems that when you move a mail to junk folder on IMAP client (like Thunderbird) anti-spam filter on MTA does not use that mail as a spam example for training... See http://bugzilla.zimbra.com/show_bug.cgi?id=9532

Here is a bash script created from the comments against this bug. I have tested it on our system and it appears to work OK. Feel free to contribute and enhance! Full credit for this script is due to bobby@zimbra.com and dmangot@terracottatech.com who wrote the bits which I just pasted together!

#!/bin/bash

wikiuser=`zmprov getConfig zimbraNotebookAccount | cut -d ' ' -f 2`;
hamuser=`zmprov getConfig zimbraSpamIsNotSpamAccount | cut -d ' ' -f 2`;
spamuser=`zmprov getConfig zimbraSpamIsSpamAccount | cut -d ' ' -f 2`;

users=`zmprov getAllAccounts | grep -v -e $wikiuser -e $hamuser -e $spamuser`;

for zuser in $users
do
echo "Train spam for $zuser"
/opt/zimbra/bin/zmtrainsa $zuser spam junk
done

echo "Zimbra spam training complete"

To install, save the above script as 'learnmorespam.sh', copy to /opt/zimbra/learnmorespam.sh on your Zimbra server. Set ownership and make executable:

[root@mail ~]# chmod +x /opt/zimbra/learnmorespam.sh
[root@mail ~]# chown zimbra:zimbra /opt/zimbra/learnmorespam.sh

And then create this crontab entry, /etc/crontab

#Learn more spam 6am daily
0 6 * * * zimbra /opt/zimbra/learnmorespam.sh > /dev/null 2>&1

That should be it :)

Another:
