Defeat spam with SpamBayes

Monday, 8 May 2006, 4:12 AM EST

Spam email is the plague of the 21st century; SpamBayes is its cure. This client-side application analyzes all incoming email messages and automatically sorts out those that are unwanted.

SpamBayes digests the contents of email messages and counts how often certain words occur in spam (bad) or ham (good) messages. Based on these word patterns, it calculates an overall score that rates a message as spam, ham, or unknown. You can manually classify unknown mail as spam or ham and SpamBayes will learn accordingly.
