I agree. I switched from SA several months ago, and am quite happy with the
speed, accuracy of Spamprobe over Spam Assassin. I'm running the version from
Testing. Being that Spamprobe is a C++ application, compared to SA, which is
Perl, it's no wonder Spamprobe is quicker on it's feet. :)

I found that after the initial setup, with thousands of both Spam & Ham, it works
best, while in training mode afterwards. In any event, it comes with a pretty fine
manual to explain the setup procedure. I have had very few false positives,
which where fixed quickly by adjusting the scoring rules.
