When it comes to training messages in SpamExperts, the system offers the capability to train messages as either spam or not spam. This training process helps improve the accuracy of the filtering system and fine-tunes its ability to identify and handle incoming emails.

By designating certain messages as spam or not spam during the training process, you are providing feedback to the system, allowing it to learn and adjust its filtering criteria accordingly. This feedback mechanism helps protect against similar spam messages in the future by pushing their combined score above the system’s threshold, or it helps ensure that legitimate messages are not mistakenly marked as spam by pushing their score below the threshold.

For example, if you train a message that was initially scored as 0.88, any future similar messages should be pushed above the system’s threshold of 0.9 (which is the default threshold for SpamExperts). This threshold determines the point at which messages are considered spam or not spam based on their combined score.

Training messages effectively helps the system adapt to your specific needs and preferences, improving its ability to accurately classify and handle incoming emails. It is an important aspect of optimizing the performance of SpamExperts’ email filtering system.

Once the messages are uploaded you will be notified that the upload was successful.
