Project Description

I am looking at modifying /contributing followed by testing the free tool available for spam control called Spam Bayes.

This is a email spam filtering tool based on Bayes Theorem. The tool in installed on the mail client, get trained on the user specified spam and good emails and then use this training to filter incoming emails.

I have installed it on my MS Outlook 10 and trained it with my spam and ham mails and observing the outcome. I want to make some modifications/update the tool which is allowed as it is a freeware and then study the results. The tool is coded using python.

The link to the tool is [url removed, login to view]

There is a wiki at [url removed, login to view] where all documentation, code etc for developers to contribute

The work involved understanding the application architecture and algorithm, then documenting how the feature selection is done,

updating the code with other feature selection methods and the algorithm and then running the tests.

This should be done with in few weeks time.
