I am amazed with your results.  I have been running the application for
over a month now and it virtually captures every spam coming to me.
Something like 400 per day.  I followed the install and
teaching/learning instructions exactly after moving a couple of day's
worth of SPAM to my SPAM folder then ran the learn feature.  Now I just
sit back and watch the junk count up in my SPAM folder. 

I get about 3 or 4 a day which are unsure and upon reviewing them I can
understand the rating of Unsure since they could go either way.

Absolutely outstanding application... And I have tested a number of

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.
