Subject Re: is Pyzor worth it?
Date Sun, 19 Oct 2008 00:48:49 GMT
I have had results similar to Peter's. I'm currently running Pyzor as an
additional spam qualifier, but I have disabled shortcircuiting of the
PYZOR_CHECK rule, due to the number of FPs pyzor hits.

On my server I have shortcircuited the highest hitting rules, that also
have the lowest level of FPs:


I originally had BAYES_99 in this list, but it generates FPs form time
to time, so I've removed it from the shortcircuit list.

Using shortcircuit rules keeps down processing time, although this is
not much of an issue on my server, because 99% of the spam is blocked by
spamdyke before even accepting the mail with almost no cpu time.
