Fedora Update Notification
2010-12-09 21:27:37

Name        : spambayes
Product     : Fedora 14
Version     : 1.1
Release     : 0.2.a6.fc14
URL         : http://spambayes.sourceforge.net
Summary     : Bayesian anti-spam filter
Description :
SpamBayes will attempt to classify incoming email messages as 'spam', 'ham'
(good, non-spam email) or 'unsure'. This means you can have spam or unsure
messages automatically filed away in a different mail folder, where it won't
interrupt your email reading. First SpamBayes must be trained by each user to
identify spam and ham. Essentially, you show SpamBayes a pile of email that
you like (ham) and a pile you don't like (spam). SpamBayes will then analyze
the piles for clues as to what makes the spam and ham different. For example;
different words, differences in the mailer headers and content style.  The
system then uses these clues to examine new messages.

Update Information:

That is a big update which includes a lot of fixes and other changes, additions.
Sadly spambayes was never updated in Fedora within the last 3 years. So please backup your data (if important), read the Changelog included in the RPM and test it.
If you're one of the bsddb users:
"The bsddb solution is problematic, in that users' databases sometimes get corrupted, but we don't know what causes that."
"New backends, particularly ZODB/ZEO, have been added, and the SQL backends improved."
