Output enclosed, below.  This was with no mail to process, of course,
but everything looks fine.

What I'm noticing (now that I'm back at home, in the land of broadband...
as God intended it to be :-)) is that I'm suddenly getting more false
negatives.  That is, SB *does* appear to be filtering, but more spam is
getting through than got through just a couple of days ago.  Significantly
more.  I can't imagine that spam changed that much just overnight. :-)

I'll keep an eye on this...


Thanks for the reply!
