Guide Review - InboxCop Anti-Spam 9.2.4 - Spam Filter
Unfortunately, filtering can be slow (especially if you have InboxCop check the online spammer blacklist), and it is not always accurate, producing a tad too many false positives. While there's no obvious way to train the included Bayesian statistical filter, you can submit wrongly classified email for filter improvement easily. Reviewing and recovering caught spam is a snap, too.
