Spam report 2

Over the past 7 days, I’ve received 506 511 (some came while writing this) pieces of spam. Of these, spamassassin correctly tagged about 450, a 90% hit rate, with no false-positives that I could see. Interestingly,’s internal junk-filtering rules gave me three false-positives. One of these was mailing-list mail with a spamassassin score of -9, two of them were paypal notices, one of which had a spamassassin score of -98! Interesting to note how disparate the two are.

  1. You know, I’m really glad I read your page – I never would have known about the cool OS X toys out there without it. I’ve been searching in vain for something like iScrobbler, and didn’t know there was such a think as spamassassin. Now I just need a popup killer – got one you recommend? (Safari just doesn’t do it for me – yet.)
