Tailight LEAKS

I have replaced both the tailight lens and the seal now twice and most carefully screwed the lens in place in the same manner as one would tighten lug bolts/nuts to get it to seat as evenly as possible and yet it still leaks when it rains or when I wash the car [driven or not in the rain] which requires that I remove the lens to dry it out. The lamp does not fill up with water but it tends to run down from the top of the lens/seal joint. I have tried usuing dum-dum to enhance the seal but this did not help. Any suggestions or ideas why and better yet how to stop this annoyance?
