I was under the impression that it was designed to be run by separate
users, like with procmail and that running all mail with a single user
(root)  would mess it up. I may be completely wrong about that but I
read several times about not using it with SA2 so I didn't think any
different about SA3. When I upgraded to SA3 it was on from the beginning
and it immediately started giving negative scores to spam so I disabled
it and never looked back.

How is it working for you? Are the results what you expect?
