As Jesse indicated, unless you actually use Gmail's POP3 support you won't
have the opportunity to feed your email to SpamBayes.  I also use Gmail and
I am continually scratching my head about the behavior of their antispam
capability.  Lot's of false negatives (some unbelievably obvious - Hey
Gmail!!!  can't you tell by now that I think all email written in Korean is
spam???) and enough false positives that I wind up having to go back and
skim through hundreds or thousands of "spam" messages looking for several it
misclassified as spam.
