True enough. It usually merely annoys me when replying to messages sent
some, probably MS, MUA that sends paragraphs as one long line. Its not
identifying itself, but it uses a message id of
hex_coded_string@another_hex_coded_string which should be rather
distinctive. I must remember to use it selectively to prevent line

I'm comfortable with.

I'm thinking about reducing that back to the default. I initially set it
higher while finding out how to use SA.

Not entirely. Its enabled but I'm only using auto-learn with default

Yes, they are now scoring here too.

Thanks for your input.
