To whom it may concern, I am currently using the unregistered version(2.1.1.367) Spam Filter ISP.  It if doing an awesome job, but I can't get the Bayesian or Bayesian Probabilty tool to detect a single spam.   It is set to learn new incoming e-mails and here are the stats so far(Emails Attempt:16072, BLocked 11941, and Forwarded 4031).  Does it still need more time to learn or just doesn't work on this version?  Thanks in advance.

Fastrails,

If the stats you posted are accurate (Emails Attempt:16072, BLocked 11941, and Forwarded 4031), then the following (from the readme.html help file) applies:

=============================== The statistical engine kicks in after 5,000 non-spam and 5,000 spam emails have been received (values customizable by editing the SpamFilter.ini file). This is done to build a valid statistical base to use before emails are rejected. During this period of time, it is critical to avoid false positives. ===============================

Your SpamFilter only received and forwarded 4031 spam email, so you have a few more to go before the bayesian engine activates. Please also note that even after the initial break-in period goes by, SpamFilter will still be learning and improving itself as new email is received, and the statistical filter will continue to improve with time.
