Don't use the above, antidrug is built into SA3 and bigevil should be
used through SURBL, the cf-file is huge and affects performance a lot.

This is old, upgrade to 0.48.

Disable AWL with "use_auto_whitelist 0" in (or
spamassassin.prefs.conf if that is symlinked to it) and remove
the related files where you store your Bayes db (/root/.spamassassin,
/var/spool/spamassassin). By the way, didn't see any info about Bayes,
it helps a lot.
