SA Learn config: path "/root/.spamassassin" is inaccessible

Post by cowboy6 » 15 Mar 2018 09:25

Hey guys.

I've successfully set EFA as our antispam server. Now I would like to use SA learn. When I tag one email for SA learn as Spam, I get this message:

Interesting is that under Recent messages is Status Learned as Spam.

So my question is... Is this SA learn working correctly?

One more thing... Under Spam report I don't see any Bayes.

Under "Tools and Links" is another link to "SpamAssassin Bayes Database Info". When you click on that link, what do you get?

Hi, this is our Bayes Database Information:

Also, the bayes database needs to be trained on a minimum number of messages before it starts showing results. Feed it more spam and ham (100 minimum?) and then your system will benefit from the bayesian analysis.

SA Learn config: path "/root/.spamassassin" is inaccessible was resolved with EFA server restart (link from henk).

For Bayes learning I will have to wait to receive more then 100 mails as said pdwalker.

Bayes stared to work after 200 detected spams.

Keep an eye on your BAYES scores. If you are confident the BAYES is helping, then you can increase the spamscore on the top end.

For example, I use a score of 4.0 for BAYES_99 and a score of 2.0 for BAYES_999 (bayes_999 is additive to bayes_99 on my system thus the final score is +6.0). These numbers are higher than the default and it seems to work well for me)
