How much tokens do you have in your Bayes db? autolearn is done if the
score reaches a certain threshold. With the low score you achieved it
won't be learned. Use additional rulesets. You should train Bayes manually
when you start a new db. My personal feeling is it should have seen at
least 10.000 messages before you can stop that. After that autolearn takes
care as long as you achieve high and accurate enough results. 90% or more
of the spam we detect is high-scoring.

You ran spamassassin on the command line, right? No MS there ;-)
