I think that for people who have been using any reasonably successful filter
for a while, these messages are the most disappointing. I suppose I
subconsciously expected that since SpamBayes was 'clever' enough to decided
whether most of my mail is junk or not, it would sort out these ones that I
can't decide on either.
I have the same "true unsure" messages that Tim describes, plus ones that
are reports of a spam message caught by a SpamAssassin filter at a domain I
look after. For those, I suppose that I should look at them, since maybe
they are actually a fp, but then they never are, and I typically just delete
them unread anyway, so maybe I do think they are junk.
Why can't these computer things make up our minds for us, huh? <wink>.
