Back then when I started with bogofilter I feed it with ~1000 collected spam 
mails and ~10000 good mails from lists and private mail. Since then I update 
it with the spam slipping through. That way I have reduced spam to currently 
2-5 a day.

You might train your filter with the archives of this list while you are 
admin. :-)


There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the 
Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be 
replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable.

There is another theory which states that this has already happened.
