of course not.  i do, however, keep an eye on my mail logs and know what kind of
traffic it gets.

also, i'm confident that if my anti-spam system rejects something then there is
only a miniscule (i.e. insignificant) chance that that it was a false positive.
this chance is so small that i simply don't care.    

if any given false positive was important or from someone i actually want to
hear from then they will find some other way of contacting me....i'm certainly
not going to accept over 25000 more spams per week just on the off chance that
one of them might be from someone i know with a misconfigured mail server or
