Even as good as my SA rules are, I check on a spot basis.

Again I'll say--no matter how good any anti-spam software is, there
will ALWAYS be false positives.  So on that basis, you don't like any of it?

The difference between using something like SpamAssassin and having no
anti-spam solution running is my having to sort through literally hundreds
of spam in my live inbox--effectively losing the use of E-Mail--without the
software, or only seeing a few get through, and just checking the
spambuckets periodically for false positives (and even then, I've scripts
to look for likely false positives.)

As a result, I have functional E-Mail, and am not afraid to keep the same
address for, literally, decades.  Can you say the same?:

Ah; didn't think so.
