-=> -=> This is a wonderful idea!  It would be terrific if a check 
-=> -=> box were added to the SpamBayes Manager, Advanced tab, 
-=> -=> which would cause automatic training on all ham left in 
-=> -=> InBox and all spam put in the spam folder.  I emphasize 
-=> -=> something Mark Hammond said, "underestimating our own 
-=> -=> tool".  If an e-mail is over a 90% spam limit, at 91%, the 
-=> -=> 9% that isn't classified as spam may contain clues as to 
-=> -=> how the SPAMming community is trying to outwit the 
-=> -=> population.  For instance, the words "buy v iagra online" 
-=> -=> (the space is to help THIS email not to be classified as 
-=> -=> spam :-) is in the database.  The SPAMmer sends "buy 
-=> -=> v.iagra online" (have you seen that technique?) which, lets 
-=> -=> assume, the classifier scores at 91% due to "buy" and 
-=> -=> "online".  By automatically training on this correctly 
-=> -=> categorized email, the word "v.iagra" gets added to the 
-=> -=> database.  Then if the SPAMmer tries to send "b.uy v.iagra 
-=> -=> o.nline" the classifier will recognize "v.iagra" from last 
-=> -=> time and have an advantage.  Its morphs with changes in the 
-=> -=> black industry, sort of like artificial intelligence.  
-=> -=> "Delete As Spam" and "Recover from Spam" buttons correct 
-=> -=> any error; for those who don't care to check the spam 
-=> -=> folder, the feature can remain disabled.
