The only way to know why a message received a particular score is to see the
clues list for the message (pre-training).  You can get to this with the
Outlook plug-in by selecting the message and choosing "View clues for this
message" from the SpamBayes menu, and with sb_server by clicking the "Clues"
link on a review page with the message.

If you don't see from the clues why the message scored what it did, feel
free to send a copy to the list (with an explanatory note) and one of us
will be happy to try and explain it to you.

Please always include the list (spambayes at python.org) in your replies
(reply-all), and please don't send me personal mail about SpamBayes. This
way, you get everyone's help, and avoid a lack of replies when I'm busy.
