Except if you use something like mailwasher (like I do) and have it blacklisted and marked for deletion, sometimes legit messages (like this one) would be marked, but I usually look at the subject line and saw the windows2000 so I saved the list (and the two people) from being blacklisted. Btw, the filter is setup to see the *N* word in the body.

That's because dropping mail detected as spam is the wrong answer, and putting it in a seperate folder isn't much better. I use Challenge/Response (specifically TMDA) for mail detected as spam, that way legit mail still gets through. (though you do need to whitelist things like mailing lists)
