Thank-you for the information about the data directory.  I have not been
able to find information on how to change the training pattern and you
tell me how to find "train on mistakes" or "nonedge training" options.
Can you assist me with this?

Note that this depends a lot on the training that you do.  If you "train
everything" you'll end up with a much bigger database than "train on
mistakes" or "nonedge training" (and the results will probably be not as
good, either).

Yes.  Instructions can be found by doing SpamBayes->Help->About
SpamBayes->Configuration Guide.  They're down the bottom under "multiple
configuration files".

Basically, create a file called "default_configuration.ini" in either
directory SpamBayes was installed into, or the current data directory,
put in it:
