I have a FreeBSD server that runs a daily security check and emails the result. There are numerous brute-force SSH attempts with suspicious reverse DNS which seems to trip a lot of the filters. Sometimes VADESPAM appears with a +5 increment tipping over my custom threshold of 8. If if it weren't for VADESPAM false positives would be highly unlikely.

I think FM should ditch VADESPAM. Using this thread as a reference it doesn't seem to benefit its users. Furthermore it's a proprietary black box check. Transparency in spam filtering is key; I like to fully understand how spam scores are being derived for each message. This is one of the key reasons I dislike Gmail.
