[Spambayes] counterweight: it really works!

Hmmm. I trained hammie on my private account yesterday night (already
running about a week at work), and found this in my spam folder this
Subject: *** We want to finance/buy your business..Pres. please !

X-Spam-Status: No, hits=0.1 required=5.0
X-Hammie-Disposition: Yes; 1.00 (8)
Just to remind everyone that this software really works! Its spambayes
score deviates from 1.0 only by about 10**-8, but SA didn't see much.
The setup I had to make for my private account is really quite involved.
My private mail domain arrives on a workstation with ample space, but
without a pop or imap server and without an adequate backup policy for
storing E-mail (it used to be forwarded by a postfix virtual map). On
the other hand, I read it from an IMAP server that doesn't have python2
installed, nor do I have enough space there for a hammie.db. I ended up
with a .procmailrc on the workstation that ends by forwarding the
non-spam messages to the IMAP server using "sendmail -i"...
