Protecting user's mailbox from infiltration of phishing email is a significant research issue now a day. Many researches are going on filtering phishing using classification based algorithms and achieve substantial performance. It has been studied and investigated with different classification algorithms and observed that the outputs of the classifiers vary from one another with same corpora. This paper presents the impact of classifier rescheduling of multi-tier classification of phishing email to observe the best scheduling in the classification process. In our method, the features of phishing email will be extracted and classified in a sequential fashion by using the multi-tier classification and the outputs will be sent to the decision fusion process. Empirical evidence proofs that the impact of rescheduling of classifiers among the tiers gives diverse outcomes in terms of accuracy as well as number of false positive instances.
