Hi Devin,

  in the mail-incoming.pl log:
> Keywords:+CERN+SpamKiller+Note:+-52

  in the relay-email.pl log:
> [relmail-83] (spamFilter)  spam_rating=-52 threshold=0 compare=0
> [relmail-85] (spamFilter)  spam_rating: reject spam mail and save it  
  to hndocs/SPAM

   The email was rejected because both the $spam_threshold and 
$spam_compare are set to 0. The latter means a good message has 
rating greater than 0. In the failed case the rating is -52, and thus
the message was rejected and saved into hndocs/REJECTMAIL.

   According to the log the working emails do not have the spam rating 
header while the failed email has "Keywords: CERN SpamKiller Note: -52", which
by accident has the same keyword as the default.

Two things worth trying:

   1. If you don't need the spam filter, please set $spam_keyword1 = '' in
      the hnrc. Otherwise continue to the following two steps.

   2. Post an email to HyperNews and check its relay-email.pl log to see if
      it has the "..SpamKiller.." header. For some reason some emails
      have this header while some don't on your site.

   3. If all legitimate emails have negative ratings, then set
      $spam_compare to 1 in the hnrc so that all e-mails with negative
      ratings will pass the spam filter.

   Thanks!
