[Spambayes] "Suspects" folder missing

Today, I was looking around my PC and when I went to the SpamBayes Manager
and looked at where "suspects" went and did a browse, I found the suspects
folder as a sub-folder under a folder I  had created some time ago but there
still wasn't a "recover from Spam" button.  I found that button under the
folder I had created some time ago for other emails. I have no idea how that
happened so I renamed my fodder to "Junk Suspects", moved the emails I had
saved in the original file and all seems to be working now.

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.
