With that score, it probably was not cataloged in bayes. What you
probably should have done is to have SA learn it as ham rather than
just forget any (spam) tokens it learned. That is, you should

sa-learn --ham --mbox /var/opt/hula/netmail/users/forget

as the user who got the mail. Had it been learned as spam, that will
automatically forget its spamminess and learn it as ham.
