Please see FAQ 5.2:

Both of these problems are most likely caused by the dead database.

If you manually delete the database, then you would need to retrain.  If you
manually delete the configuration file, you'd need to reconfigure.  An
uninstall doesn't remove your user data (which includes both of these) -
this is pretty common behaviour for an uninstall, and facilitates
upgrading/reinstalling, and so on.

A future version of SpamBayes will have an optional "uninstall user data"
