In this paper, we report a QA system which can answer how type questions based on the confirmed knowledge base which was developed by using mails posted to a mailing list. We first dis- cuss a problem of developing a knowl- edge base by using natural language doc- uments: wrong information in natural language documents. Then, we describe a method of detecting wrong informa- tion in mails posted to a mailing list and developing a knowledge base by using these mails. Finally, we show that ques- tion and answer mails posted to a mailing list can be used as a knowledge base for a QA system.
