Automatic Classification of E-Mail Messages by Message Type.
May, Andrew D.
Journal of the American Society for Information Science, v48 n1 p32-39 Jan 1997
Describes a system that automatically classifies e-mail messages in the HUMANIST electronic discussion group into one of four classes: question, response, announcement, or administrative. The system's ability to accurately classify a message was compared against manually assigned codes. Results suggested that there was a statistical agreement in between the automatic and manually assigned codes. (Author/AEF)
