Author/Date Spam?

I notice there's a new Spam button on the toolbar that moves any message to the spam folder when pressed... I guess this feature will be extended somehow to incorporate blacklists etc? Just wondering :)

Keep up the good work :D

I'm keen to implement some bayesian filters sometime, and well they need a group of spam and non-spam. So I'm collecting my own personal stockpile.

The spam button is to make it easier to collect the spam and mark it as such for future efforts at filtering.

The bayesian spam link was an interesting read, glad to see that you've taken interest in it, and hope to see future anti-spam efforts in i.Scribe some day.

Only flaw is that you still download it, which to me still is a semi-win for the spammer, it's like "Hey I may have missed your window with that piece of crap I threw, but atleast now it's on your yard". That's why I eliminate it directly on server, out of close to 5000 filtered mails I've had 2 wrongly detected as spam, and since logs are kept and people more then often have a "Sent" folder in their e-mail client, it's often just a matter for e-mailing a "Please re-send e-mail x to me" request and adding to allow list.

But my filters aren't 100%, still some get through, and it's for those more uncategorisable ones I'd like a antispam feature builtin to my client, to catch the last 1-5% that irritate me.

Adding to Lowspirit, I thought that even a couple of buttons for friend and spam lists added to the preview screen may be a simple (alas manual) but powerful add on with code checking the friend/spam data files.
