It's important that you pick some of your good messages and classify
them as 'Not Span' to get it started.  After it takes off, it improves
rapidly.  Also make sure -I is the last option in the bogofilter
command in Sylpheed's configuration.  I was using -I -u as suggested by
someone earlier and got no filtering until I changed it to -u -I.
