In the unknown cache directory.  By default this will be a folder called
pop3proxy-unknown-cache in the same folder as your configuration file is.
You can change it in the Advanced configuration page.

Messages are expired out of the caches after a certain period of time (the
default is 7 days).  You can change the period of time (to 2 days, for
example), also on the Advanced configuration page.

There're also three other options (on the main configuration page): one that
turns off caching altogether (then you can't train via the review page, of
course), one that sets a limit on the size of messages that are cached (e.g.
only cache messages < 0.5k), and one that suppresses caching on bulk ham
(e.g. mailing lists).  These might also help.

The ham & spam folders have mail that has been trained as ham/spam only.
All mail waiting to be trained is in the unknown folder.
