Thread: Should I Train Caught but Uncertain Spam as Spam Before Deleting?

  1. #1

    Default Should I Train Caught but Uncertain Spam as Spam Before Deleting?

    I am in the habit of scanning my AppleMail Spambox for messages that are caught as spam but not shaded grey, (that is the blue, orange, yellow shaded spams indicating less certainty) selecting them, then executing "Train as Spam” from the Message menu before deleting, thinking I am improving my ruleset and corpus.

    Does this have any useful effect?

    Thanks,
    Steve

    It’s better to only train the mistakes.

    Also, Blue is actually more certain than Gray.
