[Spambayes] Should SpamBayes block spam?

The messages that appear in my Outlook Express inbox do not seem to have
any type of spam, ham or unsure marking. How can I create a rule to move
to a folder without that marking? Should it show up in the inbox with
some sort of classification since the Outlook Express client is pulling
it from the SpamBayes host? Thanks, Keith.

Identify it. Then you do what you want with it (for example, set up a
with Outlook Express to automatically move all spam messages to a "spam"
folder and all unsure messages to an "unsure" folder). That way you
the messages if you end up getting a false positive (a message
identified as spam).
Since SpamBayes is client-side, it has to download the mail to classify
so there really isn't any benefit to not delivering it (and this would
difficult to do with a proxy based solution, in any case).
Please always include the list (spambayes at python.org) in your replies
(reply-all), and please don't send me personal mail about SpamBayes.
way, you get everyone's help, and avoid a lack of replies when I'm busy.
