                Hello -
                I just noticed that I have emails in the
/var/spool/MailScanner/....../spam folder. This is odd considering that
I have no store actions in spam.actions.rules. I then did some grepping
of the logs and it seems like around 35-40 emails a day are going to
this ../spam folder. The logs specify:
                Jun 18 04:44:55 manhattan MailScanner[24460]: Spam
Actions: message h5I9ioWq026384 actions are store
                Why would this happen? I only have various domains with
actions deliver, delete, or forward. The other thing is that in this
spam directory, the messages do not have the {Spam?} subject headers.

        What about High Scoring Spam Actions?
        The messages stored there are written long before any subject
header alteration happens.
