Actually, uninstalling/reinstalling won't do this.  Training and
configuration data is deliberately left untouched.

The caches are just the mail waiting to be reviewed, or mail that has
recently been reviewed.

Yes, and you should really get rid of the spambayes.messageinfo.db file,
too.  Just delete the two of them (when SpamBayes is not running).


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