[Spambayes] Training Question

Hi,

You probably get the best filtering when you only train on mistakes that
Spambayes currently makes for your emails. Feeding a large amount of ("old")
data usually doesn't improve the effectiveness of Spambayes in the longer
term.

People correct me if I'm wrong ;)

Subject: [Spambayes] Training Question


Sorry if this is not the best place to ask questions but I couldn't seem to
get to the user list (http://mail.python.org/mailman/listinfo/spambayes )

I am running Spambayes Outlook Addin 0.81 for Outlook 2000 on NT4 (sp6a).

We run Exchange Server 2000 and have setup a public spam folder where staff
manually move spam.

The public spam folder contains nearly 2000 spam emails. When I run the
training it doesn't appear to acknowledge any of the spam in the public
folder.

My question is.. can public folder be used to train for spam?
