Only certain types of messages are able to be trained - generally it should
include any message that has been received.  There are sometimes odd
messages that don't match the criteria, though, and you'll run across this
problem.  (You can also get it by putting a message that wasn't received,
for example a sent item, in the folder).

Just manually move that message, and all should be fine.  If you find that
you're getting these often, please open a bug report on sourceforge
<http://sf.net/projects/spambayes> and attach a copy of one of the messages.


Please always include the list (spambayes at python.org) in your replies
(reply-all), and please don't send me personal mail about SpamBayes.
