I'm way over 5000 good and spam mails but I've never seen a mail with anything different than "passes Bayesian filter - 0% spam"...

How can I tell that the filter has kicked in?

How can I train the filter with Spam messages it has missed? I can mark false positives by delivering them from the quarantine but I see no possibility to mark false negatives...

Cheers!

Mike

Mike,

You can run the query below on the database. It will return all of the emails blocked by the various filters. Regarding the training questions, currently you cannot tell SpamFilter about the false negatives, as those emails have been delivered already, and the email body is thus no longer available to "teach" SpamFilter with it.

SELECT tblQuarantine.RejectID, tblRejectCodes.RejectDesc, COUNT(tblQuarantine.RejectID) AS Total FROM tblQuarantine INNER JOIN tblRejectCodes ON tblQuarantine.RejectID = tblRejectCodes.RejectID GROUP BY tblQuarantine.RejectID, tblRejectCodes.RejectDesc
