Hi John,

I did receive that email, but bogofilter didn't catch it as spam.  A
couple of years ago I was getting about 90% accuracy with bogofilter.
Then after some change it dropped to about 60%.  I've never recovered
to really good filtering. 

Good luck finding an answer to the problem.  You might try re-installing
bogofilter in case something got corrupted on your disk.
