It was a highly-tuned habit of mine to select-and-delete SPAM messages in my Inbox. What I didn't realize was how many times I must have been doing this a day! My "Tagged SPAM" mailbox (which I have Mail.app filtering identified spam into) already has over 60 messages in it after only a day of use. Amazing.
The only false positive was a message that was sent to a mailing list, routed from a known open-relay server from an excite.com address.
I highly recommend you install SpamAssassin on your machine or your mailserver. It takes some time, but it's worth it. If you need help, let me know.
