You can certainly do this and you will probably get pretty good results.
However, because of the strange way that Outlook exposes the e-mail messages
to us, the Outlook plug-in and the proxy generate slightly different tokens
for the same messages.  SpamBayes learns fast, and experience seems to
indicate that a smaller training database is often best, so this might be a
good excuse to just retrain from scratch in the proxy.
