Is there a downloadable corpus?

Hi,

I’m lucky that I don’t get a lot of spam, but this has a drawback, SpamSieve isn’t very good at identifying the ones I do get - in part because it doesn’t see that many messages to build a profile.

Is there a downloadable corpus of ‘the best of spam’ I can get hold of to train my own copy in what it should be looking out for?

Many thanks,

Mike.

How many spam and good messages are in your corpus? Have you verified, from looking at the log, that SpamSieve is seeing all your incoming messages?

No. I found that using your own spam was much better, even if you only have a hundred or so.
