Let me warn you. Bogofilter requires training a database. You may not
get accurate results for the first few weeks or a month+ (depending on
your spam volume and your ham volume). It would be great if you have a
handful of a few hundred spam messages and a few hundred ham messages to
shoot at it right away. use cat to pipe the messages/MBOX files through
bogofilter -n and bogofilter -s.
I would adjust the ~/.bogofilter.cf defaults as well. Here is mine:
robx = 0.415000
robs = 0.010000
min_dev = 0.100000
ham_cutoff = 0.500000
spam_cutoff = 0.700000
block_on_subnets = yes
replace_nonascii_characters = no
spam_header_name = X-Bogosity
header_format = %h: %c, tests=bogofilter, spamicity=%p, version=%v
terse_format = %1.1c %f
log_header_format = %h: %c, spamicity=%p, version=%v
log_update_format = register-%r, %w words, %m messages
spamicity_tags = Yes, No, Unsure
spamicity_formats = %0.6f, %0.6f
If you are interested I can try bzip2ing my wordlist.db and sending it
to you via http. Email me off-list if you would like this. This
database is of coursed tuned to MY spam preferences. I have found it
very reliable (for me).
