1. Please don't paste spam samples directly to the list - upload them to 
pastebin or similar, and give us a link.

2. There's little point in just sending us the bodies of the emails with a 
comment "getting very low scores" - we need to see the headers too (sanitise 
them if you have confidential stuff there, but show us the external details).

3. Make sure you show us the headers giving the SA scores, or the log file 
entries if the scores aren't added to the headers, so we can see what tests 
you are running and what results you're getting - otherwise we have nothing to 
compare with.

Hope that helps,


Why is "dylexia" so difficult to spell, and why can I never remember "aphasia" 
when I want to?
