What is your "Slider" set for in the GUI.  It should be set for around 99% but not 0 or 100.

Please note that the Bayesian filter is only processed if all the other filters have failed to catch spam. If your "other" filters are efficient, they will catch most of the spam and leave very little left for the bayesian filter. Have you ran a query similar to the one below against the database to verify that the Bayesian filter did not catch anything? Can you please post the results of such query?

What files do you have inthe SpamFilter\corpus directory, and if any, what is their size?

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

Could you please zip and email us at" CLASS="ASPForums" TITLE="WARNING: URL created by poster. - your corpus.ini and db.dat and db.dat.prb files? While your ini file reports 19k spam emails, your query shows only about 5k in the database. Your retension period for the quarantined emails affects that value, but we'd expect to see a higher number in there. Could you also let us know on average how many total emails (good + spam) you receive each day?
