>> Get the full spam email with all the  headers in a text format pref before mailscanner has seen it, then goto and drop it to that . The send the link here
>> We can then copy the email to our systems and see what rules hit on our systems to see if any of our setups do a better job
> Ok, I'll see what I can do. In order to get a copy before it hits MailScanner I would have to use MailScanner archiving?
> Also, what are your thoughts on bayes being at 50% for a lot of spam? Would it be best to start over with the bayes database? It would seem that by having auto-learning turned on, and a few spam messages get through, this could create a domino effect as more and more is learned as non-spam when it actually is spam. I continue to send tons of the same type of spam through for learning, but I will then see the same type come through with 50%. By starting over and feeding 1000k + of legitimate spam, would that clean the bayes scoring up?
> Thanks.
Autolearn is not very good. I turned it off long ago. Do you do bayes
maintenance? Like sa-learn --force-expire...
