    Re: Wishlist: Personal Bayes filters on Mercury

    Having had run a large Mercury/32 system once, I can see arguments for not doing this too.

    In a small system the server could keep up with the load of personal filters but in a large system, you would have to have one server for delivery and filters and another server for the rest of the functions to keep up with the load.

    I may be totally off base, but its really better performance wise to keep personal filtering at the client level and do more broad stroke filtering at the server level.   Its more practical to manage also.   That being said,  I think you will love the way the graywall feature works in Mercury 5.01.  Just graywalling knocked spam 90% on my Mercury/32 system.
