Summary Spam is commonly defined as unsolicited email messages and the goal of spam filtering is to differentiate spam from legitimate email. Much work have been done to filter spam from legitimate emails using machine learning algorithm and substantial performance has been achieved with some amount of false positive (FP) tradeoffs. In this paper, architecture of spam filtering has been proposed based on support vector machine (SVM,) which will get better accuracy by reducing FP problems. In this architecture an innovative technique for feature selection called dynamic feature selection (DFS) has been proposed which is enhanced the overall performance of the architecture with reduction of FP problems. The experimental result shows that the proposed technique gives better performance compare to similar existing techniques.
