Is there a way to manually set the percentage for the bayesian filter.  The lowest I can get using the slide bar in the gui is 2.6%.  I'd like to set it to 0.01 or something like that.

Brice,

The slider is used to control the accuracy of the statistical filter. Incoming emails are assigned a probability of being Spam, ranging from 0% (most likely a valid email) to 100% (most likely Spam). Any emails that have a probability of being spam above the value you set will be rejected. Typical threshold values are in the 99.9% range. Values lower than the slider allows are very, very likely to cause false positives and are thus not allowed.
