Everything else passed except for SORBS 06 of which I only have a weight of 2 on.  We have recently been getting lots of mail marked as spam coming in when it didn't use to.

Ahh, it has a score of 9. So 9 + 2 = 11 I get the math now but still not sure what the Bayesian filters picked up. Thanks.

I'm not sure exactly. Perhaps SmarterTools will need to chime in and let you know why exactly the Bayes would trigger and perhaps point us to a log if there is one for that.

This is a constant issue we had with Bayesian filtering. Training it is a pain and takes awhile. Especially since the only way to train bayes is through the webmail interface by marking emails as spam / not spam. Most of our customers use Outlook, TBird etc. Which moving emails to / from the Junk folder has no affect on bayes.
