Using the Training Wizard

The Training Wizard allows Anti-Spam training in batch mode. To do so, specify which folders of Microsoft Office Outlook or Microsoft Outlook Express (Windows Mail) accounts contain spam and which contain useful mail.

Correct spam recognition requires training using at least 50 samples of useful messages and 50 samples of unwanted mail. iBayes will not be operational until these steps are completed.

To save time, the Training Wizard only trains on 50 emails in each the selected folder.

The wizard consists of a series of screens (steps) navigated using the Back and Next buttons. To close the wizard once it completes its work, use the Finish button. To stop the wizard at any stage, use the Cancel button.

To start the Wizard:

  1. Open the application settings window.
  2. In the left part of the window, in the Protection Center section, select the Anti-Spam component.
  3. Click the Train button in the Anti-Spam training section within the right part of the window.

While training using good mail, the application will automatically add addresses of the corresponding message senders to the list of allowed senders. You can disable the feature.
