    Re: Missing messages (for Dan Hogan, etc.)
    From: Clive Sutherland

    Dan, et al;
    This morning I received three messages from NAV-L, all from Ken Gebhart all
    from the same server. All of them were welcome and in no way exceptional.
    The first message was labelled  ***SPAM***  The last two were not.
    Reading the header information, the first message was given rating by
    something called  X-ME-Spamlevel of 'notspam' and X-ME- spamrating ' 70.15 '
    .  The last two were each designated 'notspam' ; 47.3 and 44.5 respectively.
    The first message was labelled ***spam*** on its title and would ordinarily
    have been invisibly dumped by my filter had I not been watching out for
    this.
    Somewhere between Nav-l and my ISP messages are being vetted and false
    reputations attached.
    
    Regards,
    
    Clive.
