Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) In this paper, we argue that a novel virus mail detection system. Recently, detecting virus programs
is difficult because they have been complicated and been diversified in order to hinder exiting anti-virus solutions.
According to [1], e-mails can be classfied into virus mails or non virus mails by using Mail Form Information,
instead of analyzing attached virus programs. We collect 4130 virus mails and 2504 non virus mails, and consider a
signature-based virus detection method with Mail Form Information. We also explore a way of decreasing the false
negative errors, and consider an AdaBoost-based virus detection method. Finally, we present a hybrid detection
method which employs both the signature-based detection method and the AdaBoost-based detection method. Our
preliminary results show that true positive and total accuracy can be improved by comparing with signature-based
