This is really weird - and a bit concerning since there was a similar report
recently.  I can't think of any way that mail could be downloaded through
SpamBayes and not get either a X-Spambayes-Classification header or a
X-Spambayes-Exception header, or crash.

If this happens again, could you switch to running sb_server in verbose mode


in your bayescustomize.ini file) and see if there's anything unusual in the
_pop3proxy.log file that will get created?

If it doesn't happen again, it was probably just cosmic alignment or
something <wink>.


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