    When I log into cpanel it says that I am using up 2 gigs of disk space but I did not have any idea as to why I was using so much. Upon further looking into it I found a file called "bayes_toks.new" that is located in my .spamassassin folder. The file is 2524404 k in size. Does anyone have any idea as to what this might be? I have a few spam boxes but have accounts set up in outlook to automatically delete all of these files so I don't think that is the problem. I viewed the contents of the file and it was nothing more than just a bunch of jibberish...was not words or anything like that...just symbols.

    Can I clear out this file? What is it used for?

    It's to do with the bayesian spam filtering, and you can delete it if you want.

    What exactly is "bayesian spam filtering" and where would I be able to find more information on it? What exactly is stored in this file?
