HI! I would to use the antispam component to get the spam indication level. But to use that component I need a Spam database and a clean email message database. Does anyone know where I can find a database that I can use out of the box?

Thank you in advance.

Bayessian anti-spam filter detects spam messages using statistics table, this table gets updated when user marks message as spam or non-spam. Thus, this table is really individual, some messages can be treated as spam by one user and as non-spam by another one.

However, if you need to create initial "standard" spam database, you may pick a large number of spam and non-spam messages from any existing email account(s) and get them processed by Bayessian algorithm in a loop. To provide sufficient accuracy level, there should be a significant number of messages of both types, let's say 100 spam and 100 non-spam messages.

If you don't have such messages to process, you may google for spam mail archives and use those messages.

Also, filtering spam based on statistical algorithms is language dependent, so creating a database universal for all languages is non-trivial task and requires lots of messages in all languages. Moreover, such database may cause low filtering accuracy.

Let's imagine a person from US which doesn't speak Russian and receives all messages in English. A database with Russian tokens may cause irrelevant scores for spam in Russian and such messages may be treated as non-spam.

Best regards,

This test will check all known spam databases, to see if the IP address you enter is listed with any of them. It will also report and notes that the spam databases give out about the domain, such as a URL to find out more information at. It will also check to see if there is a missing reverse DNS entry for the domain.

It tells you if your mail server IP is listed on any popular Spam Blacklists. Instructions on how to be removed from these lists can be found on the websites of each specific blacklist. You can access these sites by clicking the links provided in our test.
