Even though there a number of inbuilt E - mail filtering software associated with every e - mail service providers like Gmail , Yahoo mail they identify only text spam and image spam. As a result they could not detect the mix image spam. So this paper concentrates on identifying and avoiding partial image spam whenever it is received to our e - mail inbox by an unknown source across the Internet .
