Still deleting the ones that get to my email after adding them to the bayes database. Still, I think it’s getting better.

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.

    In less than 12 hours….

    2 False positives… are they even getting picked up?
    14 not caught.
    64 caught and identified.

    It’s pretty much functioning as it was but with the added false positives. Yes I’m in a bitchy mood…

    The false positives, if added to a false-positives folder in your home directory, shoudl get scanned and whitelisted. The missed stuff should go int an untrapped-spam folder which is scanned and added to the bayes filters.

    Since that post, I’ve had identified 90 new spam, with 0 false positives and about 8 misses.

    Maybe I’ve got additional data from my old setup that isn’t integrated in the main db.

    Have you got a folder (or folders) I can scan as good mail? That’ll help as well.

    there’s always my inbox. I have the false-positives and untrapped-spam stuff set-up. Hmmmm… maybe it can be looked at tomorrow..
