A method, and corresponding system, for identifying e-mail messages as being unwanted junk or spam. The method includes converting the outputs of a set of e-mail classification tools into a standardized format, such as a probability having a value between zero and one. The standardized outputs of the classification tools are then input to a voting mechanism which uses a voting algorithm based on fuzzy logic to combine the standardized outputs into a single classification result. The use of a fuzzy logic algorithm creates a more useful result as the classifier results are not merely averaged. In one embodiment, the single classification result is itself a probability that is provided to a spam classifier or comparator that functions to compare the single classification result to a spam threshold value and based on the comparison to classify the e-mail message as spam or not spam.
