Are these scores all for actual SPAM messages?

Using some of these services would probably improve your scoring.

Do you manually train the BAYES database?
Are the 27k Ham messages really only ham? Or does the dataabse contain wrongly trained messages?
The oldest token is 8 years old, you should remove the old tokens from the database, and only keep more recent ones. Seems like you have never run an expiry run!

Just reply to the message and it will end up in the same thread!
