Next time this happens, select the second messages (that was also scored
incorrectly) and choose "Show Spam Clues" from the SpamBayes menu on the
toolbar.  This will create a message with the clues that SpamBayes used to
classify the message.  You might be able to see from that why it's scoring
what it does, or you can send it on to the list and we'll try to explain it
for you.  (It should not be happening).

You're probably referring to what is called 'whitelisting', where you mark
messages from a particular address as always good, no matter what.  FAQ 6.6
covers this:



Please always include the list (spambayes at python.org) in your replies
