Would you bother with bayes at all then? It would be impossible to hand sort my corpus.

also turn off autolearning - found this not great for a population of more than a handful of users.

Yes, I take on board the technical suggestions. I've basically been through all those checks. :)

I am now starting to believe there is actually nothing wrong and that given I'm seeing apparent fails on blacklist rules is because the domains aren't blacklisted at the time the spam is generated.<> - registered end of 30/04/2014, spam arrived early 01/05/2014<> - registered 11 hours ago, spam arrived 3 hours ago.

So the problem is likely not MS, it's how to detect and deal with spam from brand new domains/ip.
