[Spambayes] Problem

Maybe I'm not understanding the problem. I think you're saying that
you're finding messages in your Junk Suspects folder that you think
SpamBayes should recognize as ham. My point is that if that's the case,
it may not be SpamBayes that's putting the messages there.
If that's not what you're trying to get across, maybe the classic
"Here's what I do (in detail), here's what I expect to happen, and
here's what actually happens" narrative would help. Also, please specify
your environment (mail client name and version, SpamBayes version,
operating system name and version).
Please "reply to all" so a) you get the benefit of the experience of
everyone on the list, and b) future users can search the archives and
get the benefit of whatever resolution comes of this exchange.

I don't think your response addresses my problem. My issue is that when
I pull an item sent by a sender from the "Junk Suspects" and click on
"Recover from Spam" I have be having to do it over and over when I
receive e-mails from the same sender. In essence the Spam filer is not
accepting the training. Thanks

If you're using Outlook with Exchange and have configured SpamBayes to
put suspected spam in Outlook's Junk E-mail Candidates folder, you can't
tell who put a given message there, Outlook/Exchange or SpamBayes. It
may well be the former.


I prefer to set up separate spam and spam candidates folders for
SpamBayes. I don't trust the classification performed by
Outlook/Exchange, so I have SpamBayes filter Outlook's junk folders. If
you set up version 1.0x of SpamBayes, any messages that Outlook/Exchange
thinks are junk but SpamBayes does not will remain in the junk folder.
With version 1.1, SpamBayes is capable of moving good messages, so
messages incorrectly classified by Outlook/Exchange can be moved to your

I have had to continually pull the same senders from my "Junk Mail"
suspects. After having to do so, the program is not remembering the
sending and sending directly to my In Box. Help please.
