Perhaps you should train less on this list and more on the remaining    
ham you have? More ham isn't necessarily better, if the ham contains    
a lot of spam clues (as I understand it). Presumably these six clues    
(even the odd 'spam.if' clue) resulted from training on this list.

It seems quite strange to me that these two misspelled words score so   
low. Do you get a lot of ham that has poorly spelled words?

This also seems strange; do you really have a lot of ham with this sort 
of copyright info?

Or this version number?

Or email with 'buy' in an embedded URL?

These seem even stranger. I didn't read the email, but Darksoft is the  
manufacturer, right? Any idea what ham contributed such low scores to   
these words?                                                            

It almost looks to me like you have a similar email in your ham
somewhere that was mistrained - I don't seem how a lot of these clues
could result from this list.
