So far I have been only training it on a spam when that spam gets
through the filter, and then on the next non-spam to maintain the
balance between spam and good messages in the corpus.  I might be
changing that.

Expiring old messages is not something I would want to do if my old
good messages and old bad messages were of comparable age, but my good
messages are older on the average.
