You need to retrain from scratch (i.e. delete the training  
database).  Either remove the SpamBayes data directory (on XP  
probably 'C:\Documents and Settings\{username}\Application Data 
\SpamBayes') or use the SpamBayes Manager dialog's Training tab,  
ticking the "Rebuild entire database" box.
