Hi Oleg,

I hope you are using the sb_server and/or the POP3 proxy.

Spambayes copy each message received in a cache directory and those 
messages are used for training.
The message n days old are deleted from the cache (Usually n = 7 but 
this can be changed in the setting)

You don't need to

Yes, you can discard the spam and the unsure.
Usually I pick only a few from this page and discard all the others.
