This obviously varies a lot between people. I get a false positive from
SpamAssassin about every week or two. Different people get different
kinds of spam, and different kinds of valid mail, and it is not possible
to predict how well SpamAssassin (or any other heuristic) works for one
person based on a random someone else's experiences.
