Offline.  sb_filter.py uses whatever you stick there in the way of a
training database.  I periodically copy my training database over to my
server where several other people share in the fruits of my labor via their
procmailrc files.

If you're running sb_filter.py, I'd just save mail into two piles: ham and
spam, then run them through sb_mboxtrain.py periodically, copying the
database over to your server.
