Do i need to keep feeding spam and ham to sa-learn?

Yes. As time goes by the contents of both spam and ham will shift. Not only in the content but the other data you generally do not see (IE, headers). There has also been some informal studies that show that a Bayesian classifier like this works best with "positive reinforcement". IE, even when it classifies something correctly it should be fed that to reinforce that classification.
