Hi folks,

I'm just trying to figure out how lately lots of spam gets a 'negative'
score resulting in not being seen as spam? Do I need to make some changes in
Mailscanner.conf to fix this problem or is this a known loophole spammers

Here is an example of an e-mail w/ a Spamassassin score of -4.7:
