This also means that you will achieve the best results when using Bayesian filtering if there are no other filtering mechanisms working against it. For example, the Bayesian filter may have learned that emails with a certain type of attachment are worms (let's treat them as spam here), but a white list says "no!". Or the Bayesian filter knows that your friend likes to use words commonly found in spam. The scoring content filter, which looks at certain keywords, cries "junk!"
Spamihilator comes with a capable Bayesian filter, but it also has a scoring content filter enabled by default. I suggest you turn it off. After a bit of training, this will pay off.
To disable scoring content filters in Spamihilator:
- Click on the Spamihilator tray icon with the right mouse button.
- Select Settings... from the menu.
- Go to the Filter Properties category.
- Make sure Enable Spam-Word-Filter (recommended) is unchecked.
- Click OK.
