E-mail communication is one of today's indispensable communication ways. The widespread use of e-mail has brought about some problems. The most important one of these problems are spam (unwanted) e-mails, often composed of advertisements or offensive content, sent without the recipient's request. In this study, it is aimed to analyze the content information of e-mails written in Turkish with the help of Naive Bayes Classifier and Vector Space Model from machine learning methods, to determine whether these e-mails are spam e-mails and classify them. Both methods are subjected to different evaluation criteria and their performances are compared.
