One of the spam recognition tools of the Anti-Spam component is the self-training algorithm iBayes. This algorithm makes a decision which status should be assigned to a message based on the phrases from the message. First, the algorithm should be trained on the samples of lines from useful and spam messages.

The Training Wizard is one of the methods to train iBayes algorithm. Training Wizard allows Anti-Spam training in batch mode (on several messages).

Information Anti-Spam using Training Wizard can be trained on samples of mail of the mail clients Microsoft Office Outlook (32-bit) and Microsoft Outlook Express (Windows Mail) (32-bit).
