You are not the only one to notice the increase in spam getting through.
For what it is worth, we lowered our threshold to 4 which has helped
a great deal. I am using SA 2.43 sendmail 8.11.6.

        Subject:        More and more spam getting through

Hi. We've been running MailScanner/SpammAssassin for quite some time now
and like it a lot. It does seem as though over time more and more spam
seems to get through.

I've also noticed this on my home system, which is on a slightly newer
release of MailScanner. It seems like I a couple spams a day get through
now, where as before it was one every few days.

How do people deal with this?

Right now we run:
MailScanner 4.13-3
SpamAssassin 2.50-3
Sendmail 8.12.8-5.80

I know there are some newer versions of MailScanner out there, maybe
that would help?

Any suggestions are appreciated.
