Almost Amazing!

This program is almost amazing. It does catch a very high percentage of spam.. in the month or so I've been using it maybe 1 or 2 have slipped past. Considering I get 2 or 3 spams a day, I'd say this is a roaring success.

Despite this, SpamAssassin is almost useless to me. :( Along with the 99% of the spam it catches, it also manages to occasionally tag genuine e-mail as spam. Not very often, but often enough that I can't automatically bin anything tagged as spam. The best I can do is syphon it off into another folder - but I still have to check all the mail to make sure it really is spam.

Keep up the good work people, your almost there.
