Well, not mine <wink>.  As Skip posted, the general project is 
spambayes.sourceforge.net.  I've put together a cute outlook addin.  The 
bayesian filter, plus Outlooks integration facilities is providing an 
*incredibly* effective Spam filter with very tight integration and 
incremental training capabilities.  The bayesian nature means that it 
doesn't use pre-determined heuristics, so tends to catch even the most 
subtle spam.

There is no binary distribution yet for good reason - significant, 
incompatible changes are still being made.  But if you are brave enough, 
all the source code is there (it is all pure-Python once you have win32all)

It-works-for-four-people-that-I-know-of <wink>
