Yes, that was why I did away with SA.  And bogofilter is certainly much

Had I had these emails before my having got rid of bogofilter I would 
certainly have followed this advice; but I  uninstalled it in almost a fit of 
pique after it helped itself to a whole lot more of my older mail!  (I had 
reclassified the SPAM as HAM and hoped that by running the filters on those 
files I could get the HAM back in the folders where it belonged.  At least I 
hope to learn from my mistakes!)

I'll see how I get on without a SPAM filter.  I have Gmail's SPAM filter 
pretty well trained and can probably handle manually the small amount that 
bogofilter was identifying that Gmail had missed.  It may be worth just 
putting a little more effort into training Gmail's SPAM filters.  

But I can see the merits in reinstalling bogofilter and just trying to train 
it better.  So when the dust settles a bit in a day or two, I shall probably 
reinstall and start training it.

Thanks for the help.
