If you already have all your spam on an IMAP server sorted into folders, you should be able to train Thunderbird by going into the folder with ham, selecting all the messages and hitting shift-j (not junk). Go get coffee (or probably more accurately, lunch). Then go into the folder with spam, select all the messages, and hit j (junk).
Make sure you do this before you tell Thunderbird to move messages based on its own determination of whether it's spam or not. Otherwise it'll start moving messages around before it's been properly trained.
