Spam or unwanted email is one of the potential issues of Internet security and classifying user emails correctly from penetration of spam is an important research issue for anti-spam researchers. In this paper we present an effective and efficient spam classification technique using clustering approach to categorize the features. In our clustering technique we use VAT (Visual Assessment and clustering Tendency) approach into our training model to categorize the extracted features and then pass the information into classification engine. We have used WEKA (www.cs.waikato.ac.nz/ml/weka/) interface to classify the data using different classification algorithms, including tree-based classifiers, nearest neighbor algorithms, statistical algorithms and AdaBoosts. Our empirical performance shows that we can achieve detection rate over 97%.
