Hi,

we are currently trialling Spamfilter. I have several staff who have left our company that recieve lots of spam. These email addresses get no legitimate email anymore. If I enter these unused email addresses in the TO Email Blacklist will this help build the Bayesian database faster or does this data not get used?

At the moment spam is only being caught by blacklisting Domains and Keywords only.

So far after 5000 emails our statistical filter shows "Bayesian filter - 0% spam" for all email

You may just want to block those emails at the firewall so that they never reach youe mail server.

Isn't the purpose of a blacklist - to stop it before it comes in?  So why use another tool and spend more time with another list somewhere else?

Tim,

If an email is blocked by the "Blacklist TO Emails" filter, the email content will be analyzed by the statistical filter, and it will be added to the Bayesian database as "bad" content, thus making it learn that similar emails are to be considered spam.
