Make sure you are following these steps to create the Spam field:


Also make sure that you filter all the messages after training by going to
filter messages, browse the folders to filter in, then select "score
messages, but don't perform filter action".  What this does is update all of
the scores after you train.

RE: Outlook Plug-in

I have implemented the display of the spam score column in

When I "Show spam clues for current message", the "Combined
Score" thus revealed never matches the percentage shown in
Outlook's "Spam" column. I can't find any figure in the "clues
for current message" that matches the percentage in the Outlook

Can someone explain please.
