1.2 uses a different parser than 1.0 so there would be a benefit to updating your database using 1.2a to get the new terms found by the new parser. I don't know what "totally miserable" means to you but if you are saying that 1.2a isn't finding any spams then clearly there is a problem with your database. 1.2 is at least as accurate as 1.0 in all of my tests.

Even with the correct build, when I run spamprobe find-good on my latest spam mails, I get totally miserable results compared to 1.0a! Strange! Do I have to retrain this new version with train-spam?

Nico,

Well, I made a mistake when building spamprobe. My database is Berkeley db and I somehow built it with that new hash feature enabled.

Here is the configure command, that built it correctly, I assume:

LDFLAGS=-L/usr/local/lib CPPFLAGS=-I/usr/local/include/db3/ ./configure --enable-cdb --with-db=/usr/local/lib/

Regards,

Update from version 1.0a to 1.2a *very* useful
Hi,
completely different experiences over here. At least when the PBL DB is used SpamProbe belongs to the fastest Bayesian classifiers. The accuracy in 1.2a is excellent as well. Even better in 1.3.x btw.

Update from version 1.0a to 1.2a not useful
Hallo,

spamprobe 1.2a somehow blows it completely for me. Bad, bad results, while 1.0a was and is pretty good, albeit somewhat slow.
