    Are there details on how spamtrain works? Which e-mails / folders does it consider to be ham or spam?

    Hello, 

    Plesk is using sa-lern utility to train SpamAssasin. The description of the utility is available in its documentation: 

         https://spamassassin.apache.org/full/3.1.x/doc/sa-learn.html

    And bayes algorithms (which are used in SpamAssasin) are described on another documentation page:

         https://wiki.apache.org/spamassassin/BayesInSpamAssassin

    Here is the quote:

         The Bayesian classifier in Spamassassin tries to identify spam by looking at what are called tokens; words or short character sequences that are commonly found in spam or ham. 

    If you need more details regarding that, please contact SpamAssasin developers.
