My original reply was meant tongue-in-(facial)cheek. 
Once a Barracuda has been tuned and trained it is rare
to get a false positive.

I have not used the IHS server product but I liken the
Barracuda to my client-side IHS.  I get like 1 false
positive a month with IHS client.  And as long as I am
not testing Avast AV I get ZERO spams left in my
inbox. [1]  Once the IHS client is trained it is a
"forget about it" piece of software.


[1] Hey Stu, did your guys ever figure out the
conflict between Avast AV and IHS client?
