Then you can't undo any smtp proxy training.

Not unless you've changed the code/defaults, it doesn't.  Messages move
from the unknown-cache to the ham/spam caches (and so are not displayed
in the review), but aren't deleted (until they expire).

It isn't ;)  It's easy enough to show that this is the case.  Just get
the id for a message that you've already trained (and arrived within
your expiry period) and use the 'find message' query on the front page.
Voila, it will be there.
