I finally implemented SpamAssassin on VCF e-mail accounts after trialing
it with a personal account for about a month. I've gone from something
like 200+ spams a day to almost none.

My personal account has done similarly well though after a while the spam
count started creeping back up, but its still at a very manageable level.
Instead of having to wade through hundreds of spams every 2-3 days when I
would check that account, it's now maybe 10-15.

Question: has anyone been able to make SpamAssassin be "perfect" (i.e. no
spam at all)?

Anyway, the reason for this message, other than to claim (for now) victory
against spam, is to let people know that if they do have trouble
contacting me for some reason, it may be because SpamAssassin is equating
your message with spam. If so, please page me here in the mailing list
or you can send me a message via the VCF contact page:
