How can you tell that it has no effect?  Is it possible you have more than
one mistake in your spam folder?  How many hams and spams have you trained
on?  Getting SpamBayes to fairly accurately distinguish ham from spam
generally only requires training on a few messages of each type, so while it
might seem to you like you're using a sledgehammer, it's a relatively
lightweight operation.
