If you look at the comments in this area you will see that the "Rebuild
Bayes Every = xxx" is the number of seconds between rebuilds. 259200 is
3 days, the default in the file is 86400 which is 1 day or 24 hours.
If you turn this on, make sure you set "Wait During Bayes Rebuild = yes"
so MailScanner doesn't try to process mail during this rebuild, or you
will get spamassasssin timeouts, and spam might get through.
If you rebuild daily, it shouldn't take more than a minute on a fairly
modern processor. I get times near 30 seconds on a dual pIII 1.0 Ghz server.
