How did you obtain this list?  It shows the clues for an empty database
(i.e. you haven't trained any mail).  The clue list will always be empty in
this case, and all mail will score 0.5.  I presume this isn't the database
that you're using, though, so this was a problem in obtaining the clues


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