SpamBayes, by design, knows nothing other than what you teach it.   
Since both ham and spam change as time progresses, you'll always need  
to keep doing a little bit of training.

FAQs 3.12 and 3.13 should help:

There is no "suspects" button.  There's a folder, like any other  
Outlook folder, where messages that SpamBayes is unsure about will  
end up.  On the toolbar, you should have a "SpamBayes" button, and  
when you are in any folder apart from the spam folder, a "Delete as  
Spam" button, and when you are in the unsure ("suspects") or spam  
folders, also a "Recover from Spam" button.


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