Hehehe.  I can make guesses as to why, but it's only guessing:

      * A two-word username "ignored_mailbox".
      * The use of yahoo.
      * It being list mail.
      * The list adds its own score (e.g. X-RedHat-Spam-Score: 0.479)
      * It's gone through several mail servers along the way.
      * Your system might be wary of getting a lot of mail from one
        location (fedora list), even more so when different addresses
        are used in the "reply-to" and "from" headers.
      * Possibly my ISP, though I've not heard of it being listed.

For anything flagged as spam that isn't, you have to keep on using the
"it isn't junk" button or function, until it learns otherwise.
Eventually it should.  If it does not, then the program is crap.

I gave up on anti-spam programs long ago.  For the mail that I get,
they're more trouble than they're worth.  I get around 200 e-mails a day
from mailing lists, and around 20 spams.  I barely notice the difference
between deleting real mail (read, unanswerable, incoherent, stupid,
boring, timewasters, etc.) and spam mail.

[tim bigblack ~]$ rm -rfd /*^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^Huname -ipr
2.6.21-1.3228.fc7 i686 i386

Using FC 4, 5, 6 & 7, plus CentOS 5.  Today, it's FC7.

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.
I read messages from the public lists.
