I haven't seen a DSPAM false positive in many months. Once trained, it's exceptionally accurate and very low-maintenance. I've been using DSPAM for at least two years, and have been quite impressed with it. SPF is not a statistical filter.

Your handling of mail received at an expired ("rotated") address looks to be a sticking point, to me. If Segmail sees an invalid password, "it marks it as junk (bounces it, deletes it, challenge/responses it, moves it to a different folder, whatever)". If a legitimate message is bounced or challenged, the sender might decide instead to abandon the contact -- this is one of challenge/response's sticking points. Legitimate message deletion is a big sticking point with unintelligent filters.

You say that "No legitimate mail will ever get filtered", but what happens if a correspondent doesn't have your most recent address? "it marks it as junk (bounces it, deletes it, challenge/responses it, moves it to a different folder, whatever)". In any except the quarantine response, the legitimate mail will be filtered, perhaps into the bit bucket.

Live like you want to live. I was merely suggesting that you consider alternatives that already exist and have been proven in the real world by thousands or tens of thousands of users.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
