Spambusting with CRM 114

By | 2004/04/22

I’ve been using the CRM 114 Discriminator for spam filtering for the past few weeks, and have been thoroughly impressed by its appetite for spam (and only spam).

Training took a lot longer than I expected, seven weeks, but over the past week I’m finally to a happy point (YMMV) where there are essentially no false positives, and only a trickle of uncaught spams make it through. Here’s what I’ve observed over the past three days;

  • 1305 messages filtered
  • 916 spam messages caught
  • 21 spam messages missed
  • 2 false positives, both of which were mailing list acknowledgements (which I don’t believe I had previously trained)

Spam, what spam?
