Happiness is…

Spambayes.

A long time ago, in a blog far, far away, I pined for something to free me from this prison of spam. My good friend, Peter Provost, turned me onto Spambayes.

This single tool has given me back my inbox. I’ve been targeted these past few days by a particularly nasty spam that has been sent to me over 300 times in the last 24 hours. Spambayes caught each and every one of them, and I didn’t even know they were there until I went back to look at the spam that had been filtered for me.

Ahhh, heaven 🙂 I have my inbox back again!

Here are the stats over the past week or so:

SpamBayes has processed 7238 messages –
1705 (24%) good, 4568 (63%) spam and 422 (5%) unsure.
1619 messages were manually classified as good (0 were false positives).
5249 messages were manually classified as spam (99 were false negatives).
2 unsure messages were manually identified as good, and 415 as spam.
