Junk Mail Classification Turned On in Trunk Builds

Wednesday November 13th, 2002

In a posting to netscape.public.mozilla.mail-news, Dan Mosedale writes, "At the end of last week, I checked in code to turn on basic junk mail classification features in the trunk build. There's still lots of work left to do, but it's in a state where folks should feel free to start playing with it, and filing bugs in Bugzilla. See http://www.mozilla.org/mailnews/spam.html for a short introduction to how it works, as well as credits (getting this up and running has been very much a group effort)."

if you want a 100% correct block, the bayesian filter may have to get some more spam to finally learn that ALL emails from that guy are spam... but if you want, you can create a filter rule that moves that emails to the trash and mark then as spam... this way you are teaching the filter and blocking that spam... after a while, even if the guy changes the email, the email rule will break, but at that time the bayesian filter may already have learned that those emails are always spam
