That is ridiculous.  The more training bayes gets the better it works.
And manual training is better than autolearning because autolearning can
automatically learn false positives and false negatives and cause
problems for the database.

correct according to my experience.

And what about filter poisening? In the last 10 hours my company address got 43 mails classified as spam (even a virus mail detected today). And there was one mail classified as spam due to my rule (bad country, message-id.

there's no poisoning, unless you count two your rules with indcredibly high
score (which is why rules should not have too big scores).
Lower scores of those two...

according to your previous mail you have:

- rule RP_MATCHES_RCVD scoring -3.096 that should be increased to -0.001 (already recommended by
or killed/zeroed (recommended by me)

- rule URIBL_BLOCKED indicating you use DNS server used by too many clients.
Set up your own recursing nameserver, BIND or unbound and don't configure it
to forward queries to upstream.

There is no spam content, am I right? Normal words and content that a normal person can use.

spammers typically use "normal words and content that a normal person can
use", that's why it's so hard to catch spam.  BAYES helps you find the
differencies between spam and ham and you can trust us it works great.

I dont need spam learning for all the mails already classified as spam with high score. Spam with low score are interesting for spam learning like this one. But when I use these mails for spam learning there is a risk of false positive some day, because it has learned that normal mails are also spam?

you must of course train ham mail, especially false positives, bayes needs
to be trained with ham too, because it needs to see the differencies.

if you train ham with big bayes score, it will help you much.

since you already got false positive without using BAYES, I think it's
useless to be reluctant about it.
