I must have marked at least 50 to almost a 100 with "hilburn" in the subject line and they still get through. I am running a experiment right now, I cleared out the junk folder. I am not marking any message as "Junk", I move it to a Spam folder I created. And then I am letting Spamassassin mark the messages that are determined to be junk. Right now there are 276 in the Junk folder and 227 that I moved to the temp Spam folder. I have emails forwarded from work to my home server and some of them have the "SPAM" subject re-write and they still don't get marked as spam.
This is ultimately why I moved to bogofilter over spamassassin as my mail filtering setup. We (Gentoo) optionally patch bogofilter in place of spamassassin as the spam filter plugin, because you cannot have more than one spam filter plugin at a time. The patch for 2.7/2.8 is available here if people are interested: http://dev.gentoo.org/~dang/evolution-2.7.3-bf-junk.patch.gz I've been using it for over a year and a half now, and it has a much much better hit rate than spamassassin had, it is much quicker to filter, and I don't periodically have to killall spamd. I know there's at least one other bogofilter plugin floating around out there. Daniel
