I have looked into the trac admin page to see if there is anything useful for this issue and I found that the current Jim Bells tickets and comments were filtered out as a spam.
The spamfilter on trac is not perfect. It just filters out anything if they meet some criteria that the filter setup. I have not setup the filter criteria (Yes, I have installed the spam filter as you guys requested).
It seems that it needs to train the spam filter with some admins interaction on the filtered tickets as a spam or ham.
I just tried to make four Jim Bells ticket/comments selected as a ham. I hope the spam filter does a little better job on Jim Bells ticket next time.
The following users are the admin of the boost trac system and I hope that they need to train the spam filter from time to time in case this kind of incidents happen.
I do not follow this mailing list. If someone forwards an email to me like this, I can see what happens.
