Pyzor is a collaborative, networked system to detect and block spam using digests of messages.Using Pyzor client a short digest is generated that is likely to uniquely identify the email message. This digest is thensent to a Pyzor server to:
  • check the number of times it has been reported as spam or whitelisted as not-spam
  • report the message as spam
  • whitelist the message as not-spam
