Summary In this paper we propose a new technique of email classification based on grey list (GL) analysis of user emails. This technique is based on the analysis of output emails of an integrated model which uses multiple classifiers of statistical learning algorithms. The GL is a list of classifier/(s) output which is/are not considered as true positive (TP) and true negative (TN) but in the middle of them. Many works have been done to filter spam from legitimate emails using classification algorithm and substantial performance has been achieved with some amount of false positive (FP) tradeoffs. In the case of spam detection the FP problem is unacceptable, sometimes. The proposed technique will provide a list of output emails, called "grey list (GL)", to the analyser for making decisions about the status of these emails. It has been shown that the performance of our proposed technique for email classification is much better compare to existing systems, in order to reducing FP problems and accuracy.
