    I'm not sure what you are asking about comments previously marked as spam. But... you can view the spam comments (the ones that aren't considered 'the worst' and automatically blocked) at anytime by going to Comments -> Spam which is here

    There is a setting in Settings -> Discussion which automatically discards any spam comment on posts older than 30 days (its in comment moderation).

    Spam is automatically deleted after 15 days.

    Oh and if you notice spam that isn't spam in the spam folder, then just mark it as not spam, that way Akismet will learn. Same goes for spam in the moderation queue.

  4. ok. How do i see comments marked as automatically 'spam' less than 15 days ago? They are not in my spam queue
