even 8 out of 10 is bad ...   because the important info they needed
was considered spam and dumped.... bad thing to do ..

i can filter to less than .1% spams that does get thru ...
( disallow html-based emails ... and whitelist the "friends" )

but in other cases, say 1/10 spam gets thru ...
and some of these (old) accts get 500+ spams "attempts" a day
( but very very few gets thru ...  disallowing html-based emails is the
( trick

- and i use sendmail... sorry...  and is very low maintenance
  for adding/changing "antispam" rules
	- and zero false positives ... for "so called spams"
	i rather see a spam get thru once in a while than to dump
	an important email

- if you've received the spam in your inbox or smtp server... game over..
  you've just been confirmed and would be added to other new spam lists
	- imho, post processing w/ filters after the fact is too late
