It would be helpful to know what gives you that feeling.

How are you training and how are you testing?

In general, Bayes works best when each user trains for the ham and the spam 
that *they* receive - you can share Bayes databases between users, but it's 
less effective.

Do remember also that Bayes *needs* to be fed ham as well as spam for it to be 
able to learn the difference - it's not just a question of giving it all the 
spam you receive and assuming it can work out from that what isn't spam.
