How much do you expect to see in Junk Suspects?
I get about 15% ham. All the ham goes in Inbox (I had one ham in Junk Suspects last week), along with 1 or 2 spam, which is beautiful. 25% to 30% of incoming mail goes in Junk Suspects. Is that reasonable?
My database is unbalanced (36 ham/84 spam), so I'm only training on ham in Junk Suspects (i.e., hardly ever). Should I be seeking ham to train on?
If "optimization" is the process of improving software performance, this sort of thing should be called "pessimization". -Scott Meyers
