Sorry, I wasn't trying to sound defensive.  I was just hoping to make
things a little more transparent by sending a description of things
happening behind the scenes.

Doing more investigation of things since the last message I think the
SpamAssassin Bayes database has become munged.  I posted a question to
the SA mailing list with more details but basically the nspam number
was only 1k not 60k and sizes don't match.  Something bad happened
causing it to be broken.  Probably the root cause of the recent false

I am continuing to investigate this.  My next plan of action as soon
as I can squeeze the time in is to pull older snapshots from backup
and see what it was and when it went bad.  I will probably leave it
with an older version and see if it happens again soon to see if we
are rolling over some counter or some such.  We get enough mail
processed through it that I could see some bug in a rollover as
possible.  But it could have also been some file lock problem too.

The message-id would allow me to search for the message and find it
from the queue.  I currently keep ten days worth of messages for being
able to look and debug and pull a message out from several days ago.

But having the entire message means I don't need to look for it.
Which is quite convenient.

Yes!  Please do.  It is useful and the help is appreciated.
