How do I interpret the bucket probability in the detailed message history view?

The probability listings for each bucket are numbered from greatest to least, probability wise. All of the scores from each word that is classified and deemed to belong in a specific bucket are tallied and added up to derive the bucket scores. A probability of 1 (the highest possible score) means that POPFile is quite certain that message belongs in that particular bucket. The numbers below the number 1 bucket are listed using “floating point math”. A probability of 3.782315e-144 is equal to 0.000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000003782315 (I think I got all the 0's in there!). Obviously, a very small number and a very small probability.
