I was about to chime in and say "I think people missed your point."
It never came across to me that you were wanting something specific with
dpsam... more that you wanted an explicit trigger for when a user decided
something was/wasn't SPAM. And I, personally, love the idea.
Auto-training when (and only when) the user evaluates a message? Sounds
great. Count me in.
So, let me see if I fully understand how you want it to go:
1) mail hits your MTA, which hands it off to dspam
2) dspam munges it, decides if it's SPAM or HAM, and delivers it to the user,
either in INBOX or SPAM
3) if the USER moves a messages into SPAM, dspam is notified it missed a
message, and retrains on it.
4) if the USER moves a message out of SPAM, dspam is notified it got a
false-positive, and retrains on it.
Seems to me it will possibly lower the overall load, since you will only
rescan/retrain messages _explicitly_ changed from/to SPAM/HAM. Now, if only
you could get some resident form of dspam, so you didn't have to keep spawning
it.... or did I miss something in the docs? Then again, there's libdspam...
