SPAM fighting (A talking to myself, want to get this in google postâ€¦)
Iâ€™ve been getting a HUGE number of SPAMs slipping through my SPAMASSASSIN filter, and have been trying to figure out how to combat it. SPAMs are getting flagged as BAYES_00, which gives them a negative score.
I was moving them into the SPAM folder, then running sa-learn nightly to train.
Iâ€™ve started moving those SPAMs into a separate folder, then running sa-learnâ€”forget to forget the scoring, then moving them back into the SPAM folder and re-running sa-learn.
Iâ€™ve also tried changing the score for BAYES_00 from negative to 0 by adding the following line to my user_prefs file:
score BAYES_00 0.1
I should look at getting my addresses out of Outlook and into a whitelist format for Spamassassin.
So, the process looks like:
Move mis-filed HAM from SPAM to SPAM-moved
Move the mis-files HAM from SPAM-moved to Inbox
Fingers are crossed.
Thereâ€™s a good online resource regarding Bayesian filtering at http://spamassassinbook.packtpub.com/chapter9.htm, a free chapter in an online book.
