I understand that the Bayesian filter doesn't start until 5000 emails have went through.   Is there a way to apply someone else's database into mine?  It will take a long time for me to hit 5000 emails.  Also, any instructions on how to read the following messages in the log file?

05/08/04 07:00:05:062 -- (5932) Begin Sync Corpus.db
05/08/04 07:00:05:062 -- (5932) Sync Corpus.db pass 0a

Kelsky,

Each company's spam is different, this is what makes our statistical filter so efficient, since it "learns" the spam you receive and adapts to it. If you wish to use someone else's database you can surely do so, but please note that the results may not be as accurate as they could.

All you need to do is to stop SpamFilter, replace the db.dat, db.dat.prb and corpus.ini files in the SpamFilter\corpus directory with the new ones, and restart SpamFilter.

The entries you refer to are logged to indicate that SpamFilter is updating the token corpus with the updated values it has learned in the previous 10-30 minutes. They're there for troubleshooting problems.
