How many ham emails did you feed to sa-learn?
Bayes will NOT activate without 500 spam and 500 ham messages, minimum.
Also, beware that spam.assassin.prefs.conf makes mailscanner's
Thus, when you train, you need to train with an account that has that same
bayes path in it's user_prefs (ie: I do this with root).
Also make sure that /var/spool/spamassassin exists as a directory.
DO NOT make a subdirectory named "bayes" in there.
