[Spambayes] Problem with POP3 Proxy
admin at calchiro.com

I run a bunch of mailing lists, so that the ham that I get is often
administrative. I don't want to delete it, hence the skewed numbers.
My gut is that it probably got corrupted by some of the spam that I get. The
lists have been around a long time and get some pretty strange spam. I'll
keep an eye on it, and if it gets corrupted again, will send the log or the
Thanks again for all of your help.
