Hi John,
In case you didn't get this already- Q1 should take no more than 8 tries to find the bad email. Select half and half again and half again etc until you narrow it down.  Q2 it appears to report on the number of messages 'moved' or 'filtered out'.  I probably don't understand what you are asking though.  Does that answer you?
