Spam is commonly defined as unsolicited email messages, and the goal of spam categorization is to distinguish between spam and legitimate email messages. Spam used to be considered a mere nuisance, but due to the abundant amounts of spam being sent today, it has progressed from being a nuisance to becoming a major problem. Spam filtering is able to control the problem in a variety of ways. Many researches in spam filtering has been centred on the more sophisticated classifier-related issues. Currently, machine learning for spam classification is an important research issue at present. Support Vector Machines (SVMs) are a new learning method and achieve substantial improvements over the currently preferred methods, and behave robustly whilst tackling a variety of different learning tasks. Due to its high dimensional input, fewer irrelevant features and high accuracy, the SVMs are more important to researchers for categorizing spam. This paper explores and identifies the use of different learning algorithms for classifying spam and legitimate messages from e-mail. A comparative analysis among the filtering techniques has also been presented in this paper.
