When Should I Stop Training?

I installed SpamSieve a month ago and did the initial training as recommended, with 325 spams out of 500. The program works well.

Whenever it misses a spam email, I tell it “Train As Spam”. Over the month of operation, I estimate that I’ve said “Train as Spam” to perhaps 100 or more additional messages. At some point, should I stop doing that? Could I be giving it too much?

I assume that I should forever tell it “Train As Good” when that is applicable.


After the initial training you should always train SpamSieve on mistakes, and not on any other messages.
