Executive Summary

A well-known approach for collaborative spam filtering is to determine which emails belong to the same bulk, e.g. by exploiting their content similarity. This allows, after observing an initial portion of a bulk, for the bulkiness scores to be assigned to the remaining emails from the same bulk. This also allows the individual evidence of spamminess to be joined, if such evidence is generated by collaborating filters or users for some of the emails from an initial portion of the bulk. Usually a database of previously observed emails or email digests is formed and queried upon receiving new emails.
