I unfortunately had to give up K9 when my ISP decided to crawl into
bed with MS and Hotmail for my e-mail servers. I had to go with secure
pop and smtp connections and K9 didn't natively support secure
connections. And I couldn't get the 3rd party tool that did the secure
connections to work with it.

Having said all that, when I used K9, I never had it have bad days
like that. Once it was trained it was upwards of 98% effective with
something like 7 false positives in the couple of years I used it.

Sorry no help I know.
