Are you using Outlook Express & sb_server?  (Your message looks like that is
the case - if not, please let us know as what is below may be wrong).

Messages stay in the SpamBayes cache for a limited amount of time (7 days,
by default).  After that amount of time, you basically can't untrain any of
those messages.  If you find that you make a mistake using the review page,
then you can use the "Find Message" box on the main page of the web
interface to find the message (as long as it's within the 7 days) and
correct the training.

Does this answer your question?
