|Author/Date||Bug (?) in the Bayesian options + questions|
- Setting a folder name that does
not exist gives no warning.
- Tagging a mail as spam when folder does
not exist marks the mail as read, but
nothing else seems to happend.
I have 4000+ spam-mails in my Mozilla
folders (which nicely imports as MBOX btw!)
How can I train Scribe on those emails?
In Training-mode - does it move suspected mails
or do I have to switch to live-mode? How soon
can I expect it to filter spam properly?
|... also - where is the wordlist stored? Can I check if the training is working somehow?|
|The word lists are stored as:
in the same directory as Scribe. They are just text files so openning them in a text editor will verify if they are being populated correctly.
I'll add a warning on setting the probably folder to a non-existant folder. Same for a missing /Spam folder.
If your 4000 spam is in the /Spam folder. All you have to do is run the Filters->Rebuild Word Lists command and the filtering should start working straight away.
|Thank you for your reply.
Regarding the training of i.scribe (Win32/Test44)
Following your instructions yeilds no visible result.
HAMWORDS is populated by outgoing mails I send.
WHITELIST grows as I add filters, and rebuild "regular" folders...
... but SPAMWORDS remains at 34 bytes, before and after training, rebuilding, and also when I individually tag SPAM.
I suspected it could have something to do with all my spam being imported. But checking an actual account where I receive quite a lot of spam daily, gave the same results.
It seems that Bayesian functionality is broken in Test44.
Apart from that - kickass program!!! :D I've been looking for something tiny and portable, and this seems to be it!
