Abstract—The growing volume of spam Emails has generated
the need for a more precise anti-spam filter to detect unsolicited
Emails. One of the most common representations used in spam
filters is the Bag-of-Words (BOW). Although BOW is very
effective in the classification of the emails, it has a number of
weaknesses. In this paper, we present a hybrid approach to
spam filtering based on the Neural Network model Paragraph
Vector-Distributed Memory (PV-DM). We use PV-DM to build
up a compact representation of the context of an email and also
of its pertinent features. This methodology represents a more
comprehensive filter for classifying Emails. Furthermore, we
have conducted an empirical experiment using Enron spam and
Ling spam datasets, the results of which indicate that our
proposed filter outperforms the PV-DM and the BOW email
