It is impossible to tell why a message scored what it did without seeing the
clues report for that message.  Next time a message is incorrectly
classified (*before* training) please select the message and choose "Show
spam clues for this message" from the SpamBayes menu.  Send that message on
to the list, and we should be able to figure out what is going wrong.


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