Hi guys,

thanks for the latest release, I'll have a look at the release notes to see if it catches some of the smaller bugs I found.

Question: are you talking to the people of the DSPAM project (http://www.nuclearelephant.com/projects/dspam/)?  They appear to have dreamt up a couple of improvements on the Bayesian filtering - not sure if they're on to something or whther they haven't quite gone through the same process as you guys ;-).

Kind regards,   /// Peter ///

The SpamBayes team is pleased to announce the latest release of SpamBayes -
1.0a9 (0.9).

This is both a release of the source code *and* of binaries for Microsoft
Windows users, including, for the first time, an installation program for
all Windows users, not only those that use Microsoft Outlook.

As such, we recommend that all SpamBayes users, including those currently
running from source, and those using the Outlook plug-in, upgrade to this

The Windows installation program will install either the Outlook add-in (for
Microsoft Outlook users), or the SpamBayes server program (for all other
mail client users, including Microsoft Outlook Express). All Windows users
(including existing users of the Outlook add-in) are encouraged to use the
installation program.

If you wish to use the source-code version, you will also need to install
Python - see README.txt in the source tree (or view it online) for more

This release fixes a large number of bugs in the last release, and includes
a few new features, too.  For a detailed description of everything (well,
everything we remember) that has changed since the last release, you can
view our WHAT_IS_NEW.txt file, either online, or in the source distribution.

Get it from the 'Download' page at

Enjoy the new release and your spam-free mailbox :-)

--- What is SpamBayes? ---

The SpamBayes project is working on developing a Bayesian (of sorts)
anti-spam filter (in Python), initially based on the work of Paul Graham.
The major difference between this and other, similar projects is the
emphasis on testing newer approaches to scoring messages.

The project includes a number of different applications, all using the same
core code, ranging from a plug-in for Microsoft Outlook, to a POP3 proxy, to
various command-line tools.
