Not to thread jack or anything, but when I first moved our cluster to
Spam Assassin, I was disappointed at the amount of messages that would
get past Spam Assassin at even a low threshold of 2.

I Googled around and found a bunch of rulesets that once installed,
started tagging those hard to get messages. is a good place to start if anybody else
is running Spam Assassin straight out of the box.
