POPFile Doesn’t Filter E-mails

Problem

POPFile doesn’t filter e-mails despite training. All e-mails remain in the bucket «unclassified».

(Possible) Solution

At least at the beginning all e-mails ending up in the bucket «unclassified» need to be manually reassigned to another bucket.

Note

If you leave e. g. e-mails, which aren’t spam, in the bucket «unclassified» and you only reassign the spam to another bucket, the filter won’t work. Besides «unclassified», you always have to use at least two other buckets, e. g. «spam» and «no-spam». «Unclassified» serves only as transition bucket for e-mails, which need to be manually reassigned to another bucket.
