Training SpamAssassin

Hi all,

Yesterday I installed SA on my account. Everything went just fine, there’s just one little thing that didn’t work out: I’m not getting to train SA.

I tried ~/sausr/bin/sa-learn --spam ~/Maildir/.Trash/cur, but that results in an error. It tells me to use the -D option, but when I do it just hangs.

How can I find out what’s wrong with it?

Also, I use Thunderbird through a secure POP connection. Thunderbird’s spam filter works really well for me, and I have a long collection of spam that I’d like to use with SA, I just don’t know exactly how. I’m thinking about opening a new mail account that I’m going to connect to using IMAP, and then move those messages over there and train SA with those. Is that a good plan?
