You can move them or whatever, but it's always nice to have a set of
known spam messages handy in case you need to re-train so I wouldn't
blow them up. Unless you have an unlimited supply...
It's not a good thing to re-run sa-learn across the same set of
messages because it muddies up SA's database of tokens I think, or
rather there's a command line switch that needs thrown to make
'sa-learn --forget' about a message before re-learning it as spam or
And don't neglect to run 'sa-learn --ham' on a goodly amount of known
ham messages, it's equally important for initial setup.
