However your problem seems to be the reverse, i.e. you're getting spam

not learned enough to distinguish between ham and spam.

Is there any way to see the output or results of the spam filter run on
a message?  Evo has almost never marked a message of mine as Junk, but I
don't see anyway to troubleshoot it.

The way to deal with that is to train it. The exact method varies
according to the filter, but with Bogofilter (the one I use), the
easiest way to to save a bunch of spam messages (the more the better
but around 100 is a good number) in an mbox file and run "bogofilter -M
-s < file". Do the same with a bunch of non-spam messages (using '-n'
instead of '-s') and you'll have an initial corpus that Bogofilter can

Wait - are you saying that "Mark as Junk" doesn't do that for me?
