When I do an "Analyze Selected Mail" if there is a spam probability of 1.0000
a word then it displays 1.#INF00 and the Result=-1.#IND00. 
I have my threshold set at 0.6 rather than 0.9
In statistics, "False Negatives" displays #
"False Positives" displays 3
"Efficency" displays 100.0% (And I think it's supposed to be spelled

I will attach a screenshot to illustrate.

In hindsight, the spam filter has not found any spams for me in a long while.
I'm not sure whether it is because of this or because my corpus is somehow
tainted or the spammers are getting better. All the spam I'm catching right now
is coming from an image filter.

I've fixed the spelling. Not sure what is up with the word databases. Could you
save the .idx files somewhere safe and rebuild the word lists?

Yes, removing the .idx files and rebuilding them helped. Finds spam now and the
#INF and #IND have both disappeared. # still shows up in the False Negatives
place though. Is there a way of resetting these statistics?
