I have a spam:ham imbalance of 10:1 in my current database. However,
my available corpus is pretty small - under 200 ham and 3500 spam
(I've been retaining spams for a while now, but my saved ham is
basically just mails I found interesting enough to archive). And that
corpus is what I trained on, in any case.

So I don't have any test data. And I don't really understand how to
run tests with what I do have :-(

I'd happily run some tests on this database, if you could give me some
details on how to go about it.
