I'm really looking forward to 3.0, because for me, SpamAssassin just isn't working any more. It was fantastic for a while, but it looks like 2.63 has lost the arms race for now: it's gone from 95% success down to about 50% on my personal mail.

It sounds like this version should turn the tables again, so congratulations to the developers for what sounds like an excellent release in the makings. Until we can defeat spam at the source (er, um...), SpamAssassin is perhaps our biggest hope!

I'd found a similar decline in effectiveness, but when I discovered and added the latest supplementary rulesets (backhair, popcorn, chickenpox, weeds etc) the effectiveness went back up to the 98-99% range.

Have a look at the custom rulesets page. They made a significant difference here as well. Do also consider RulesDuJour; like all anti-spam measures, the effectiveness of these rulesets tends to decline over time and they need to be updated.

Ok, found it... in the SpamAssassin Wiki.
