dspam_train: train a corpus of mail

NAME

dspam_train - train a corpus of mail

SYNOPSIS

dspam_train [username] [--client] [-i index|spam_corpus nonspam_corpus]

DESCRIPTION

dspam_train is used to train and test a corpus of mail (in maildir or MBOX format). This tool will present each message to DSPAM for a classification and then retrain only if the message was incorrect. This provides close to real-world training and should be used to build pretrained databases. Upon execution, the tool will automatically determine the ratio of spam:nonspam and train based on that ratio to ensure both corpora are trained consecutively. This tool can also be used as a test jig to measure the efficiency and accuracy of a particular corpus against DSPAM in a given configuration.

OPTIONS

--client
If specified, DSPAM is used in client-server mode.

username
Specifies the user to train, if omitted the current user name is used.

-i index

index : Path to the index file having the following format per line:
[class] [path to message]

spam_corpus
Specifies either the pathname to the directory containing the corpus of spam, with each in a separate file (e.g. maildir format) or a path to the mailbox in the traditional Unix MBOX format.

nonspam_corpus
Specifies either the pathname to the directory containing the corpus of nonspam with each message in a separate file or a path to the mailbox in the traditional Unix MBOX format.
