In this paper we have proposed a spam filtering technique using (2+1)-tier classification approach. The main focus of this paper is to reduce the false positive (FP) rate which is considered as an important research issue in spam filtering. In our approach, firstly the email message will classify using first two tier classifiers and the outputs will appear to the analyzer. The analyzer will check the labeling of the output emails and send to the corresponding mailboxes based on labeling, for the case of identical prediction. If there are any misclassifications occurred by first two tier classifiers then tier-3 classifier will invoked by the analyzer and the tier-3 will take final decision. This technique reduced the analyzing complexity of our previous work. It has also been shown that the proposed technique gives better performance in terms of reducing false positive as well as better accuracy.
