You should also consider that DSPAM, fully trained, can grow very
large. I use a single username for a dozen email boxes, and the
database is 3.5GB. Though you can trim it by dropping tokens that
aren't as accurate, or aren't as frequently used, it could still become
big, especially with a lot of users.
