A small, fast, flexible Bayesian filter for processing e-mail. It is
"trained" by the user to categorize email as spam or non-spam. This
implementation integrates well with existing tools such as procmail
and mutt. It can use a variety of formats for storing data. A utility
is supplied for converting data between the supported formats.
This package includes support for text and libdb formats.
See "A Plan for Spam" <> by Paul Graham
