Check the list archives.  There has been academic research in this area,
though I don't know the reference off the top of my head.  It's come up
in one of these four places:

    * this list
    * at the recent spam workshop
    * on Gary Robinson's website
    * on Paul Graham's website

It would probably be a good idea to collect a bibliography on the spambayes
website, though I'm short on time at the moment.  This is one of those
things where a Wiki would be marvelous.  Anthony, can MoinMoin be run on SF?
If not, I'd be happy to create a new MoinMoin instance on manatee.mojam.com.
