The Bunny spam filter

The Bunny is a small anti-spam system that aims to significantly reduce the amount of Unsolicited Commercial E-mail (UCE) -- also known as spam or junk e-mail -- and strives to optimize between effectiveness and amount of effort required to maintain a running system.

On this site, you will find a short motivation why I want and need a spam filter and a short discussion of filtering strategies applied. Also, there are some notes on how to install and configure the Bunny.

Oh and yes, the Bunny is ofcourse named after Mr. and Mrs. Bun, characters in Monthy Python's "SPAM" skit. Having implemented the filter in the beautiful Python language, it was the only decent1) thing to do, don't you agree? :-)

The picture with the cute bunny on this site is a free web graphic by Matthew Peters, a freelance cartoonist. Take a look at his site to find more work of him.

1) Quoting the python tutorial, chapter 1: "By the way, the language is named after the BBC show "Monty Python's Flying Circus" and has nothing to do with nasty reptiles. Making references to Monty Python skits in documentation is not only allowed, it is encouraged!"
