I had this problem with Insight Cable using synacor.com as spam filter, and the user could not disable that filter.

Some good messages were filtered out, including messages, some spam and some nonspam, from FreeBSD emailing lists.

I switched to by old AT&T/Yahoo bellsouth.net account.

Since Insight Cable was acquired by Time Warner Cable, that problem no longer exists.

Worst thing that happens is that Subject line is preceded by [SPAM], and that has happened with some legitimate messages.
