Abstract : pPhishing email detection is a significant threat in today's world. The rate at which phishing are generated are tremendously increasing day by day. It is high time to deploy a self-learning system that gives a time bound detection and prevention of phishing email efficiently. This work proposes a system which uses term document matrix as feature engineering mechanism and classical machine learning techniques for detecting phishing email from legitimate and phishing ones. The system also incorporates the domain knowledge and lexical features as part of feature engineering mechanism. The efficiency of the system is compared using different classical machine learning techniques. Based on the accuracy, we propose the best model that solves the formulated problem efficiently.
