Brightmail has given false positives in my experience. I switched off
their filtering again...

As I understand it they use unpublished honey pot addresses so should
not give false positives. I suppose that there is the possibility that
someone has obtained some of the addresses and subscribed them to
mailing lists, but that seems unlikely. Can you give any indication of
the false positives that you saw.

I can`t remember which they were now, but i`m on a couple of mailing
lists / consumer survey groups, and these were flagged IIRC
