|Hebrew SpamAssassin Rules
| What is this?
This is an effort to write rules for SpamAssassin to detect Hebrew and Israeli spam.
Spam is becoming one of the most annoying things about the Internet,
and SpamAssassin is an open-source project that scans email messages for spam,
and tags it with a score according to the Spam level.

| Good idea! where are the rules and what the **** do I do with them?

After you have something like that, you can download the rules files and put them

| WOW, I'm impressed, how can I help this project?
Helping this project is a very good way to keep it alive and efficient,
it won't survive without your help...
There are few ways in which you can help:
Use the rules, see how they work and send us comments.
After you'll learn the syntax, write new rules and send them to us.
Get Hebrew and Israeli Spam so we can analyze it and write even more rules.
Forward the spam to email@example.com (include full headers if possible).
