Those messages are only necessary if you want to retrain from scratch.  In normal operation, you shouldn't need to do this.  However, since we're using alpha software, you might want to keep it so you can retrain when a new version breaks the old one, or mashes up your training data.

Odd.  I've tried to reproduce that error and can't.  Even if I delete the original folder it finds it's way back to the inbox without an error.  Make sure you let the list know if this is a regular occurance.

It shouldn't be that much slower.  The addin doesn't do a lot apart from when messages arrive and on startup/shutdown.  The startup/shutdown times are much slower, but I don't notice any slowdown apart from that.  Does anything in particular seem slow?
