I have noticed that SpamAssassin has been letting more spam through
lately as well. The spammers have started to get a little smarter. It
seems that the spams with the randomness at the beginning or the end of
the subject line are getting through most often.
Oh well... I am pretty damn impressed with the quality of the spam
blocking for email@example.com. No need to do anything more.
