Has anyone else noticed any changes in your SA scoring after upgrading
to MS 4.66.5 and SA 3.2.4?
I have my scoring set to Bayes auto learn ham at -2.0 and Bayes auto
learn spam at 30.0. But since I have done the upgrade Tuesday I have
been seeing significantly lower spam learns, while my average SA scores
have dropped and the most hit score above my high spam is around 10.xxxx.
In MS I weight them <4 ok >4 is possible spam and >8 is delete( high spam )
My average score for high spam before the upgrade was around 23.xx and
the average overall score was about 19.xx
now I am seeing about 19.xx for high avg score and 16.xx overall average.
It seems like all my rule sets are ok for SA using the newest sa-update
set compiled, when I grepped against the previous version 3.2.3 rules
they only differ in the version tags.
I believe I need to tweak my auto learn spam settings based on what I am
