The Bayesian filter is used as a last resort to check for spam, after all the other filters have had a chance to do so. Only if they all fail is the Bayesian filter used. As such, it will have mostly pre-screened emails to check, and will only tag a very small percentage of them.

As an example we provided a snapshot of our filter stats for 3 days worth of emails on the forum as follows:

94,828 IP found in MAPS search
74,161 IP address is from a blacklisted country
10,810 Invalid sender domain MX record
7,896 SPF Sender Policy Framework match
3,044 Keywords found in content
763 Exceeded maximum number of RCPT TO
526 Mail From and Mail To domains are equal
345 Statistical filter match
27 Mail From and Mail To are equal

According to the above, the Bayesian statistical filter on our own server only blocked 0.2% of the spam found by the other filters. However that is still 354 spam emails that were successfully blocked.
