I save false negatives to a folder named 'spam', and false positives
(none yet, I started with a huge 'clean' sample) to a folder
'nonspam'. Every night (but I'll make it once a week now, since it's
very slow) I grab the two mbox files, and shove them through scripts.
Takes half an hour to run unattended. Takes milliseconds to do the
save-to-folder thing. The system caught 3 this morning.
