Resend to all: [Spambayes] spam with 100% score not moved to junk

Yes I did use the "Show spam clues for current message" which appears under
the "SpamBayes" button on my Outlook toolbar. I used it when the email was
still in my inbox (highlighted).

I've been using SpamBayes for about a year without problems. This has been
happening for the last few months only. I've uninstalled and reinstalled and
re-run the training but it made no difference. I've also unchecked and
rechecked most of the boxes in SpamBayes manager but still can't get any
filtering to happen. There was, however one exception, yesterday one email
was put into my "unsure" folder!?! That's the first time ever that that has
happened, as far as I can remember.

Following on from your email, I've added the "Junk E-mail Type" field to my
inbox. It is empty.

BTW The log file I sent was the one with the latest date and I had only just
started Outlook for the first time, at that stage, yesterday.

Unfortunately, the log file you included was not the one that was active
during the time that those messages were filtered (there's no record of any
filtering in the log at all).

When you say that they were filtered and score 100% - how do you know that?
Do you have the spam field visible and saw the score appear there?  If you
used the "Show spam clues" option that gives you a current score, but
doesn't tell you whether the message was filtered, or what it originally

Is this something that happens often, or has only happened once?


Please always include the list (spambayes at in your replies
(reply-all), and please don't send me personal mail about SpamBayes. explains this.
