SpamAssassin 3.1.7 Install


Anyone had a successful bayes test after the install of spamassassin 3.1.7? The scores don’t show that spamassassin is using bayes when you compare that to test scores SA is supposed to give based on

Any thoughts?


I have read that unless there are at least 200 spam and 200 ham tokens, SA won’t use the Bayes classifier. Try running:

sa-learn --dump magic

in your .spamassassin directory, and look at the numbers in the third column for nspam and nham. Also, I had to delete my bayes files when I upgraded to SA V3.x, because the db format changed.


Is there info on wiring this up on the wiki? I’m getting really sick of the stock spam that’s been pouring in recently.



That was the trick, needed to train for Ham, been training for spam, thought that was the only required training… Once 200 Hams were in, Bayes lit off!

Thanks again
