Email is obviously important for many types of group communication that have become most widely used by millions of people, individuals and organizations. At the same time it has become a prone to threats. The most popular such threats are what are called a spam, also known as unsolicited bulk email or junk email. To detect spams, this paper proposes a spam detection approach using Naive Bayesian (NB) classifier, where this classifier identifies email messages as being spam or legitimate, based on the content (i.e. body) of these messages.
