Yes, should be fine.

The sa-learn will ignore X-Spam-* header fields.

The presence of Delivered-To, X-Envelope-To, X-Envelope-To-Blocked
and X-Quarantine-ID fields shouldn't be a problem, even though
bayes may store these as tags.

Yes. Some older versions of sa-learn needed an option --dir when
given a directory as an argument.
