Interestingly, some of the more difficult to train where actually
misclassified by me. Fixing that, and reloading a backup wordlist, I
think it's working. However, since all the email I was processing was
nothing to be "unlearned" I skipped the -S -N options.
Two passes and it's done.
Now we'll see how it goes.
Made some cute scripts for it though. I think I'll run a monthly test
on my archives to see how many of them have changed state based on
current learning patterns.
