Yes, it does require ongoing maintenance.  Less that cleaning up the
spam that was getting through to the BTS before though.  With proper
tools, all it takes is a human to review the borderline cases and
decide what is spam or not.  (and ajusting other spamassasin rules
that are causing problems.) As the filters are trained, the number of
borderline cases drops.

With Microsoft, failure is not an option.  It is a standard feature.
