This is the function of the discard button:
- Erase the message from the spambayes directory and DON'T DO anything 
with it.

Usually I discard messages from the Spam and Ham list that are scored 
correctly and I train
on Unsure and misclassified messages (If this happen)

This is the function of the Defer button:
I don't know what to do with this message for now so keep it I might do
something with it later....

This is the function of the ham button:
Add this message to the database and tell the classifier that this is a 
good message.
(I think the message is deleted after.)
