Have you read the bogofilter man page and the FAQ? They have all the
info you need -- notably how to train bogofilter (with multiple ham and
spam messages -- the more the better) and how to correct mistakes.
Your message doesn't specify how many ham and spam you used for
training. The more training you do, the better bogofilter will be able
to classify messages!
When first using bogofilter, errors in classification are inevitable.
You'll have to use options "-n" and "-s" to expand bogofilter's
knowledge of what's right and what's wrong.
