People all around the world spend billions of e-mail messages daily, and the use of mobile e-mail (e-mail sent via a mobile device) is growing at an astounding rate. Despite its advantages, one of the biggest threats to an email today is Violent and phishing e-mail. This research improves the detection and filtering of violent and phishing e-mails by implementing a fuzzy Logic detection model that classifies e-mails into classes’ violent, phishing and ham and then determines how harmful the classified e-mails are. Incoming e-mails were classified based on how well their features as compared with their rank values satisfied the stated fuzzy rules. From the results, output e-mail classes and their corresponding degrees of threats were provided at high accuracy and improved speed from Moderate to High or Very High.
