Okay, so, ... are you just hypothesizing that the spam in question was 
sufficiently 'customized' to evade even Fuz2?  I guess I could accept 
that, but all of my junk-mail is showing Fuz2=1.  I would expect at least 
some of them to show up as bulk.  Otherwise how is the program useful?

I'm not sure I understand:
is the junk mail that I was talking about which had Fuz2=1.  It wasn't a 
mailing list message.  I was showing in case you had any idea if something 
in the message was throwing off Fuz2.
