Yes, please do so!

Do you know of ANY implementations that already work so far? I know what Paul Graham is dealing with but he is still starting up...

If you check the website of Paul Graham every now and then you'll find that he's updating links to "products" that already implement some of the ideas discussed in various Bayesian filtering papers (including his). Go here - http://www.paulgraham.com/filters.html

Bayespam (found on freshmeat easily) is one such implementation in Perl. There are supposedly gains to be made by implementing in C code so check out SpamProbe and SpamOracle as well - these don't call third party routines to do their thing.

Also - you might be interested in Memory Based Learning routines. Although it's beyond me, it's another machine learning algorithm type - and you can read a paper about it here - http://arxiv.org/abs/cs.CL/0009009

And lastly - you might be interested to know that Microsoft have funded some research into Bayesian mail filtering (and I'm no M$ basher so don't look for laughter here) and you might be interested in reading some of it here - http://research.microsoft.com/~horvitz/junkfilter.htm
