[Spamassassin Wiki] Update of "NightlyMassCheck" by KevinMcGrail

Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Spamassassin Wiki" for change notification.

The "NightlyMassCheck" page has been changed by KevinMcGrail:

== What? ==
-
Nightly MassCheck runs are the way people submit data on the effectiveness of current rules on their recent spam and ham. It is used to generate the very rule scores that determine the effectiveness of SpamAssassin (distributed via sa-update), and to evaluate rules via the RuleQaApp. The accuracy of SpamAssassin is directly related to the number of people contributing to nightly MassChecks.

'''This does not require sending us your email.''' Just logs of which rules hit your emails.

An advantage to participating is that it makes SpamAssassin more accurate on your email.

Unfortunately new masscheck contributors are not currently being accepted due to a security problem (bug 6694, which you probably can't see). You can still request an account, and you will be notified when it gets created.

- 1. Send an email to private [at] spamassassin requesting an [[RsyncAccounts|rsync account]] for nightly mass-checks. If you get no response, it can help to post to the public dev [at] spamassassin mailing list.

The easiest of all methods is to upload your [[corpora]] and let us process it for you: UploadedCorpora

The corpus-nightly script is a less maintained alternative to the auto-mass-check script: CorpusNightlyScript
