Bayesian filtering
Authored by: supercity on Mar 24, '03 08:50:05PM
This is going to sound like an ad. I'm an Entourage user and was tearing my hair out at junk mail that outnumbered real mail by 2:1. Then I discovered Spamsieve at
This little beauty is a Bayesian filter for all major Mac mail programs (except Mail, which has its own built in). Install a few Apple Scripts into Entourage (or Eudora, whatever) and you're away. It's now achieving 97.4 per cent accuracy in moving spam messages to a separate spam folder, where I can look them over before trashing them. Can't recommend it highly enough. The best 20 bucks I've spent on shareware.

Bayesian filtering

Chalk me up as another happy user of spam sieve. Bayesian filtering
is a fantastic idea for how to deal with should also be noted
(I believe) that apple's own uses a Bayesian filter for junk
email as well.

Spam Seive Rocks!
Authored by: jason mark on Mar 31, '03 08:02:18PM

I agree. Spam Seive is great. Esp with the applescripts.. all you have to do is hit control-G for good mail and control-S for spam... very easy.

I also have a series of RULES that I made by hand that are run before spam seive.. these let spamsieve know what's junk even before it has to look at it.
