Legend of Scores, Types and Icons

The Spamfire mail list can show both good mail and spam mail (you can control what is shown). You can recognize what is displayed by looking at the icons in the left-most column of the mail list.

(any) Revenged message Spam message that you have taken Revenge on.
(any) Definite good message Identified as good by a Sender Filter or a Rule Filter.* These filters can override the results of the Bayesian filter.
1 to 30 Probable good message

Identified by the Bayesian filter.

31 to 50 Borderline good message Identified by the Bayesian filter, but with less certainty. Unknown messages appear as borderline messages

The next two columns in the mail list give you information about other copies of the messages.
