This is exactly what I did, and it started producing results immediately.  
After I had trained on only a few (maybe 5) or so spam, it began classifying 
nearly all spam correctly.  It didn't classify ham correctly very often at 
that point, but I was ok with that.  Unsures and ham are much the same to 
me...  - TimS
