For me I find the sorting to by so so, still get a lot of spam in the
inbox. Seems 90% still do not get caught.

Glad you like Spambayes.  Lots of us do.

You can delete those messages, but if you decide to retrain from scratch
at some point, you'll have to start with a figurative clean sheet of
paper.  I understand that retaining mountains of spam is a bit
problematic.  An intermediate option might be to periodically sort your
spam folder by received date and delete the oldest 90% or so.  That way
your spam folder remains at a reasonable size and if you have to retrain
from scratch you have some recent spam to jump start the classifier.
