Worthless why?  Because you've only managed to train on good mail?  Do the
logs have any information?  If you look at the headers for the mail that
isn't in the review page, are they being classified as ham
("X-Spambayes-Classification" header value of "ham") or failing to be
classified ("X-Spambayes-Exception" header)?

Reading through the archives isn't really feasible for finding a solution.
You can use google to search them, however - do a search for something like:

  site:mail.python.org spambayes review messages problem

This doesn't sound familiar, though, so I wouldn't bother for this problem.
The best place to start is with the logs.


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