Then there is definitely something wrong here. How have you done the
training?  By using the "delete as spam" button, with the initial
configuration wizard, or via the "Training" tab of the SpamBayes Manager?

Could you please send us a copy of your log files?  They should have
information about what is happening.  The troubleshooting guide
(SpamBayes->Help->Troubleshooting Guide) has information about how to find
the logs.


Please always include the list (spambayes at python.org) in your replies
