mozilla spam filter becoming less effective

Discussion in 'NZ Computing' started by Dave - Dave.net.nz, Aug 22, 2005.

  1. Does anyone else find that the more you train it, the less effective it
    becomes?

    It seemed to have a bell curve sort of thing, found no spam, then found
    all, no it's back to finding almost none of it, and it is very spammy
    looking spam.

    Hang on in there, the spammer(s) has moved out of existing filter range.
    Just show Thunderbird what is happening and things will improve, until the
    cycle repeats.
