Abstract

See full text

A classifier of electronic messages includes one or more pre-filters and a filter. Messages classified as spam or legitimate by one or more of the pre-filters bypass the filter. Messages classified as suspicious are further classified by the filter as either spam or legitimate. Messages classified as spam are routed to a spam quarantine storage area. Messages classified as legitimate are routed to a spam delivery area.
