Despite attempts to legislate them out of existence, spam messages (junk email) continue to fill electronic mailboxes around the world. With spam senders adapting to each technical solution put on the market, adaptive solutions are being incorporated into new products. This paper undertakes an extended examination of the spam-detecting artificial immune system proposed in [1,2], focusing on comparison of scoring schemes, the effect of population size, and the libraries used to create the detectors.
