A good question. One of the differences between Graham and Robinson is the
counts used in updating the word lists. Graham has a max of 4 (per word
per message), while Robinson uses 1. So, to be totally kosher, one should
build a database using the same algorithm as will be used when classifying
I don't think there's been any research to measure what happens when you
FWIW, my word lists were built with Graham and updated using Graham for
several weeks until I switched to Robinson last week. I'm using "-p -e -r
-u -l" in my procmailrc, and my "correction" script has been using "-S -l"
and "-N -l". I forgot to update it to "-r" - an oversight I just
corrected. I still have all the incoming email, so I could rebuild the
word lists, but I've been too lazy.
