The initial MailScanner Gold rpm installation installs a Bayes Postgres 
Database. Bayes autolearn is configured as ON so it should learn from 
your site's spam.

This will be changed soon to provide and install a "starter" Bayes database.

If you already have a Bayes installation using local files or a MySQL 
database , you can manually import that data into the Postgres Database 
if you like
