> As discussed in 2015 at 
> [https://bz.apache.org/SpamAssassin/show_bug.cgi?id=7287,] this idea was 
> ideal for GSOC but there was a problem with a deadline missed. 
> Apache SpamAssassin is a mail filter to identify spam. It is an intelligent 
> email filter which uses a diverse range of tests to identify unsolicited bulk 
> email, more commonly known as Spam. These tests are applied to email headers 
> and content to classify email using advanced statistical methods. 
> In addition, SpamAssassin has a modular architecture that allows other 
> technologies to be quickly wielded against spam and is designed for easy 
> integration into virtually any email system. 
> It is primarily written in Perl with a few bits in C and shell scripts for 
> system integration.
> The compendium at 
> https://raptor.pccc.com/raptor.cgim?template=email_spam_compendium is helpful 
> to understand some of the concepts with SpamAssassin
> It will be helpful for a student in this project to understand SMTP but a 
> willingness to learn and setup your own mail server on a Linux Distribution 
> with SpamAssassin for a personal test domain will be very desired with 
> assistance provided to get the basic framework for a sandbox for learning.
> As email becomes more commodotized by major providers, knowledge of email 
> systems and their security is dwindling.  This opportunity can provide 
> real-world experience with an email security product that is employed by 
> countless commercial systems in the world.
