Hi all,
I am getting quite a few false negative and false positive detections. So;
I have set up two email addresses:
ham@mydomain.co.za
spam@mydomain.co.za
Is it still best practice to use the script at: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=836&p=9667&hilit=exchange+spam+imap&sid=0d894af73228701db8214c16fc980513#p9667

to train the baysian filters?
How does the community train their Mailcleaner setup?

Regards,
Leslie

If I am getting false positives and negatives, I look at whether I am using public DNS (which I should not be), whether I am using legitimate rbls and white lists, and whether spamassassin and clamspam are updating properly.

A large number of false postitves and negatives is a sign that something is wrong. Bayes is usually used to tweak a working system for a particular business quirks.

Feel free to ask questions and we will work to get this working for you.

Hi Uncltom,
Thanks for this.
I have added another RBL, and set the hit limit to 2
Some questions;
1) How do I know if the RBL is legitimate?
2) how do I check if spamassasin and clamspam is updating?

Regards,
Leslie
