Mail::SpamAssassin::BaUser3Contributed Perl DocuMail::SpamAssassin::Bayes(3pm)



NAME
       Mail::SpamAssassin::Bayes - determine spammishness using a Bayesian
       classifier

DESCRIPTION
       This is a Bayesian-like form of probability-analysis classification,
       using an algorithm based on the one detailed in Paul Graham's A Plan
       For Spam paper at:

         http://www.paulgraham.com/spam.html

       It also incorporates some other aspects taken from Graham Robinson's
       webpage on the subject at:

         http://radio.weblogs.com/0101454/stories/2002/09/16/spamDetection.html

       And the chi-square probability combiner as described here:

         http://www.linuxjournal.com/print.php?sid=6467

       The results are incorporated into SpamAssassin as the BAYES_* rules.
