In one way yes, because your current database is the result of running the
emails through the 1.0a2 tokeniser.  So say you had an email containing
"via<hide>gra" (which the token now understands, but didn't used to) then
you'll have a "via" and a "gra" token instead of one "viagra" token.  But
in another way no, because new emails will go through the new tokeniser.
Since you probably have a decent spam score for "viagra" already, any new
"via<hide>gra" email will get a hit for "viagra".

If you're getting good results, I wouldn't worry about retraining.
