I know with SA versions before 3.x it was recommended to turn off
AWL. Since then I have played with this being on and off. It works
fine for a while until a nice spam message or two get hit with a nice
big negative score and it sails through. I was wondering if I am just
not giving the system enough time to sort it's self out or if SA with
MailScanner is better off with out AWL?
