need to ask for help. I hope I get this right.

I observed a marked increase in false negatives in the last few weeks.

Only today I had enough sense to look at the detailed scores. And, all

the escaped spams have hit the BAYES_999 rule. I grepped the site

configuration directory:

[3+0]~$ fgrep -h

BAYES_999 /var/lib/spamassassin/3.003002/updates_spamassassin_org/*.cf

##{ BAYES_999 ifplugin Mail::SpamAssassin::Plugin::Bayes body

BAYES_999 eval:check_bayes('0.999', '1.00') tflags

BAYES_999 learn,publish describe BAYES_999 Bayes spam

probability is 99.9 to 100% # score BAYES_999 0 0 4.8 4.5

##} BAYES_999 ifplugin Mail::SpamAssassin::Plugin::Bayes

so it seems this is the "highest spamminess" rule, and the score in the

config file reflects that. But the message header is:

X-Spam-Tests: BAYES_999=1,DOS_OE_TO_MX=2.523,HTML_MESSAGE=0.001,

The score for BAYES_999 is 1 in all cases :( Where does the 1 come

from??? Certainly not from my user_prefs, I go to great lengths not to

change any scores. And the factory configuration doesn't even seem to

have this rule:

[4+0]~$ fgrep -h BAYES_999 /usr/share/spamassassin/*.cf

[5+0]~$

I am baffled. Is this a bug?

My configuration:

version 3.3.2

daily sa-update run stores updates in /var/lib/spamassassin/

spamd + spamc --headers
